    A sandwich panel side impact structure in a tube frame chassis may not meet requirement of rule(s):
    • A. 

      All equivalency calculations must prove equivalency relative to steel grade SAE/AISI 1010.

    • B. 

      In addition to proving that the strength of the monocoque is adequate, the side of the monocoque must have equivalent EI to the sum of the EI of the three (3) baseline steel tubes that it replaces.

    • C. 

      The perimeter shear strength of the monocoque laminate in the front bulkhead support structure should be at least 4kN (880 pounds) for a section with a diameter of 25 mm (1 inch). This must be proven by a physical test completed as per T3.31.2 and the results include in the SES

  • 4. 
    If 2 M8 fasteners are listed in BOM and 8 are used, what will be the total penalty?
    • A. 

      1

    • B. 

      6

  • 5. 
    A team is manufacturing a composite monocoque. The tub is constructed by building the top and bottom separately and bonding it together. Both the top and bottom use a two-piece composite tool and the cost of all four tools is $50000.

      $401.35

    • C. 

      $416.67

      None

  • 6.
