2012 FSAE IMPACT ATTENUATOR DATA REPORT Page 1 of 3


This form must be completed and submitted by all teams no later than the date specified in the Action
Deadlines on specific event website. The FSAE Technical Committee will review all submissions which
deviate from the FSAE rules and reply with a decision about the requested deviation. All requests will have a
confirmation of receipt sent to the team. Impact Attenuator Data (IAD) and supporting calculations must be
submitted electronically in Adobe Acrobat Format (*.pdf). The submissions must be named as follows:
schoolname_IAD.pdf using the complete school name. Submit the IAD report as instructed on the event
website. For Michigan and California events submit through fsaeonline.com.
*In the event that the FSAE Technical Committee requests additional information or calculations, teams have
one week from the date of the request to submit the requested information or ask for a deadline extension.

Height (vertical direction): ___100__ mm (>=100mm)
Attenuator is at least 200mm wide by 100mm high for at least 200mm: Yes
Attach additional information below this point and/or on additional sheets

Test schematic, photos of test, design report including reasons for selection and advantages/disadvantages, etc.
Additional information shall be kept concise and relevant.

Test Photos:

Impact attenuator before, during and after the crush test.

Showing maximum deflection of anti-intrusion plate less than one inch.

Design Selection:
One of the main design goals for this years FSAE car was to make many of the components
lighter and more effective than the previous years designs. This includes the impact
attenuator, where the weight has been reduced by more than 20% and the space occupied
has been reduced by more than 60%. This reduction in size also allows more flexibility in the
design of the nose cone. In addition to being lighter and smaller, this years impact
attenuator absorbed more energy than last years, ultimately making the car safer while
staying within the parameters required by FSAE rules and regulations.
