Our laboratory has just signed a collaboration agreement with ARUS Andalucia Racing, a team composed of 80 students from the University of Seville, all of them fans of racing and innovation. ARUS has been participating for 5 years in the Formula Student, an international racing competition attended by university students from all over the world with single-seaters developed and manufactured by themselves. Last year they competed in Holland, in the Assen circuit, and in Spain, in Montmelo, with two cars: the ART-18C (combustion) and the ART-18E (electric). With them they achieved the best results in the history of the team.

Titania’s experience in the study and testing of materials joins this motivating initiative, offering technological support in different areas. For example, we will collaborate with ARUS in the development of its next monocoque bodyshell, made of carbon fiber and honeycomb. To do this, we will perform mechanical tests to optimize its structure, which should have a resistance comparable to classic tubular chassis, and maintaining safety standards.

This technological collaboration is not confined only to testing activities, it could also cover the chassis manufacturing process itself and even the technical training of the team, if necessary.
