The Composite Materials sub-teams is responsible for deciding the materials that will be used for a variety of applications in every part of the car, and thus work closely with the rest of the sub-teams. Sub-team members, study and test the mechanical properties of materials such as carbon fiber, kevlar, fiberglass and copper mesh and  aim at incorporating them in our vehicle in a manner that produces a light, rigid, and durable end product. Testing includes multiple tensile, bending and shear experiments as well as simulations under certain physical conditions performed in finite analysis programs. Composite materials are used throughout our race cars with the most notable applications being the aerodynamic package and the battery box.
