Abstract

This research discusses about the manufacturing method of electric sports car's body. The contents of this study include literatures, research methods, and results. Focus of this research is on the technique of manufacturing electric sports car's body by spraying the body frame that has been coated with elastic fabric. Two types of fabrics will be used in this study namely lycra and oscar. Mold ring is used as a body frame and the elastic fabric to form the surface is then sprayed by resin to make it harder. After the elastic fabric hardened then fiberglass will be added to strengthen the material. Then tensile test and stress analysis are perfomed to find out the strength and suitability of material. From the test obtained that oscar fabric specimen has better strength than lycra fabric specimen with tensile stress 5 [49] Kg/mm [MPa], 2.26% elongation, and von misses 5.147e+007 N/m while lycra fabric with 4 [39] Kg/mm [MPa] for tensile stress, 2.24% elongation, and von misses 4.083e+007 N/m. According to the experiment it can be conluded that this method only needs the cost around IDR 902,500.00 with easier and even faster for a car body manufacturing process.
