MOTOSTUDENT UNIZAR What is Motostudent? Motostudent is a biannual international competition between universities around the World. The objective is to design and build a motorbike from a basic kit, and to develop an industrial project for a serial production and a innovation project. This fourth edition contains two categories: MotoStudent Petrol: 250cc prototypes and 4 stroke. MotoStudent Electric: 100% electric prototypes. The competition has two different phases. The first one, MS1, contains the best innovation and industrial project. The second one, MS2, englobes everything related with the prototype. Technical and dynamic verifications, acceleration proofs, braking, gymkhana. As well as a full weekend with free practices, qualifying and the race. In addition, the best innovation project and the best industrial project are also prize. This last one consists in designing the fabrication process of 600 racing motorbikes per year whit a unitary cost less than 4.850 euros in the petrol case and 9.750 in the electric case. The competition is both promoted and developed by the Moto Engineering Foundation association (MEF). This association encourages the technological development of the motorbike sector in terms of research, technical tests and training. 1. 4

MOTOSTUDENT UNIZAR In Motostudent also collaborate many companies that support this organization and that provide the basic kit common to every team in order to design and build the prototype. The culmination of the competition takes place in the velocity circuit of Motorland Aragón. There the following aspects will be evaluated: Demonstration of the prototype according to the regulations. Presentation of the industrial project: design, numbers, development and construction. Security tests. Race. . 1. 5

MOTOSTUDENT UNIZAR Get to know the Motostudent Unizar Team Members In the fourth Motostudent edition, the team representing the University of Zaragoza is made up of students enrolled in different fields like industrial engineering, degree of mechanical engineering or degree of design engineering. We have a nonprofit organization in which we all take part called Moto4Team, and that we use as platform to make all the necessary paperwork. Also the team is supervised by Francisco Moreno Gómez, Professor of the faculty of Engineering and Architecture and who belongs to the Area of Machines and Heat Engines. Motostudent Unizar aims to implement and develop our expertise to design, fabricate and compete with a motorcycle, representing our University and Autonomous Community on the international scene. It is an ambitious and complex project that lasts two years. Over this time, students will receive complementary training and will face the business world with seriousness, commitment and motivation. This competition will show and help the growth of values that are needed in the current enterprise world such as teamwork, management and optimization of resources, organizational capacity, self-improvement, respect and personal effort. In this fourth edition, the team members will continue the work carried out by colleagues from previous editions, trying to improve the results achieved and establishing the team as one of the most competitive ones in the competition. It is worth mentioning that it is not just an illusion but also a reality in which great results have been reached not only in competition but also in many final career thesis. This is made possible by the means and support offered by the University, state organizations, private companies and Vocational Training centers. Thanks to them we translate in good results what today are still forward-looking designs. 1. 6

MOTOSTUDENT UNIZAR Background For this new edition of the contest, we rely on the experience and support of the teams that represented the University of Zaragoza in previous editions. In the first contest there were two teams, which resulted in the first and third position. The one that ended up the first represented the school of Industrial Engineering and the one who ended up the third represented the Polytechnic Superior Center. In the Second Edition, the University presented a unique team that was created after the unification of both centers in the School of Engineering and Architecture, After holding a second position during the entire race, the team finally achieved the fourth place crossing the finish line just two tenths of a second after the second qualified motorbike. In the third edition the team achieved to get the best of both previous motorbikes. After winning the acceleration test with the longest gear relation of all the teams, the motorbike was in second position in the last laps. Sadly, a reliability problem in the brake system made the pilot go to the ground. After returning to the race he accomplished to reach a bittersweet seventh position. 1. 7

MOTOSTUDENT UNIZAR The work made in all previous editions can be cataloged as a great success, achieving the values and expectations that the competition wanted to convey. However, these good results would not have been possible without the support and financial contribution of companies, which were deeply impressed by the impact and visibility that won over the three competitions. 1. 8

MOTOSTUDENT UNIZAR Areas of expertise The team is divided into different areas devoted to certain specific aspects of the motorcycle, so a greater specialization is achieved. In each of them members of the team participate totally focused in squeezing all the possibilities of its field. The members are always in contact and every certain time we make common meetings where each area exposes its work, goals and deadlines are fixed and we coordinate. Every one of these meetings are presided by a moderator that guarantees the fluency and efficiency. There´s also a person in charge of writing down the progress and compromises agreed. Some teammates work on the geometric definition of the bike, design of the chassis and axle or in the modeling of the suspensions. Equally, they turn on the engine, measure the exhaustion pipe and manufacture the components. Finally they will carry out the industrial project with the economic, feasibility and development surveys. The whole project will be the result of the application of the knowledge acquired in the classroom and tools used during the race. Students will put into practice those skills learned helping the team manufacturing the prototype. This way we will be able to show what we can do! 1. 9
