Modelagem conceitual de um veículo elétrico especificado para competições de economia de energia
Molina, Marcus Vinicius Bezerra
The present work is oriented to the proposition of a new vehicle concept, specified to perform high efficiency in terms of energy consumption. The development and detailing of this concept will take place through two-dimensional and threedimensional modeling, both physical and computational, to present the results of the conceptual project. The accomplishment of this was motivated, in part in the successful results of our institution in the sports-technological challenges of energy efficiency, as well as, in an insufficient systematization of the process of designing vehicles with such specificities. Allied to the knowledge in the fields of design and creativity, integrated product development and project management, these motivations guide the search for methods, methodologies and reference models, which, once conveniently associated, reduce the possibilities of failure of the project. In planning for the execution of this work, especially in the process of ideation, are included from the refinement in manual graphic representation techniques in the sketching, to the training in computer programs of three-dimensional modeling to obtain the digital mock up of the chosen alternative, for presentation of the concept. Of equal importance, is the standardization of all information generated to the documentation system – e. g. models, reports and presentations, for execution, evaluation and eventual corrective actions.
