Formula SAE Race Car Cockpit Design An Ergonomics Study for the Cockpit 2000-01-3091

An ergonomics apparatus was designed and built to aid in the design of a Formula SAE (FSAE) Race Car cockpit. The apparatus incorporated adjustable cockpit dimensions that were adjusted accordingly for the tested subjects. A compilation of this data was used to design a cockpit suitable for people within the range of 95th percentile male and 5th percentile female. By testing subjects in various cockpit designs, the ergonomics apparatus was also used to validate the final design of the cockpit.
