Abstract: This report covers the concept production of the mounts for a rear wing of a Formula Student racecar. A structural analysis was also executed of the whole wing. KTH Formula Student’s aerodynamical group requested that this would be done since this part would be better done if it was to be done by someone who inherits better mechanical knowledge. The first part of the development process was to study the mounts for different types of racecars, and to later do an evaluation matrix to find the best suitable concept. A further development of the chosen concept was later done, by also performing more evaluation matrix’s that covered material, attachment and manufacturing. Studying literature was essential for this process. Finally, the mounts for the rear wing was designed whilst also performing numerous structural analyses in order to optimize the results. It was essentially the results of the analyses that shaped the final design of the whole wing.
