Objective: To design and analyze the student formula car roll cage by using analytical method. Method/Analysis: In this method the analysis is based on the dynamic loads applied on the roll cage through the conditions of normal driving, along with torsion rigidity of the roll cage. Roll cage can absorb high energy impacts at the same time as controlling the rate of deceleration. Finding: The effect of analytical calculations are used in designing student formula SAE car roll cage, with the recommendations made that the mild steel and carbon-fiber skins on a tabular space frame. Application/ Improvements: The proposed analysis paves a path of reference for design and analysis of student formula car roll cage.
