A youtube search turns up dozens of student made chem e car videos from years past. To design a car that can only be powered by chemical reactions.
Unl division of chem e car aiches annual chem e car competition engages college students in designing and constructing a car powered by a chemical energy source that will safely carry a specified load over a given distance and stopthe competition which involves multiple regional competitions and a final competition at the annual student conference increases awareness of.
Chem e car design. Aiches technical society safety and chemical engineering education sache has been at the forefront of the evolving safety training and safe practices efforts as well as rewritten rules that stress safe vehicle design. Design and construction of chem e car smarttrons powered by thermoelectric generator utilising temperature gradient of two reactors. According to the competitions official rules students must design small scale automobiles that operate by chemical means along with a poster describing their research.
Thus we decided to participate in the aiche chem e car competition for the first time in march 2014. Chem e car are a group of university students who wanted to participate in a design teamthe chemical engineering background shared by much of our team led us to look past conventional engineering competitions. Design and construction of chem e car smarttrons powered by thermoelectric generator utilising temperature gradient of two reactors.
The chem e car competition is an annual college competition for students majoring in chemical engineering. During the competition they must drive their car a fixed distance judged on how close the car is to the finish line. The process of creating the car involves building a power system batteries fuel cells supercapacitors etc selecting a stopping mechanism reaction designing the circuitry coding microcontrollers and assembling the mechanical components and car body.
Design build and compete. To cite this article.
