ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to all those who gave me the possibility to complete this report. A special thanks to our final year project coordinator, Mr. Zamri, whose help, stimulating suggestions and encouragement, helped me to coordinate my project especially in writing this report. I would also like to acknowledge with much appreciation the crucial role of the staff of Mechanical Laboratory, who gave the permission to use all required machinery and the necessary material to complete the Differential Simulation Rig A special thanks goes to my team mate, Mohd Arif Bin Mohd Ariffin, who help me to assemble the parts and gave suggestion about the Differential Rig Last but not least, many thanks go to the head of the project, Mr. Imran bin Sairaji whose have given his full effort in guiding the team in achieving the goal as well as his encouragement to maintain our progress in track. I would to appreciate the guidance given by other supervisor as well as the panels especially in our project presentation that has improved our presentation skills by their comment and tips.

ABSTRACT

Design and fabricating the rear wheel drive differential simulation rig is a conceptual understanding of automotive engineering which is not provided in daily lectures room due to the fact that it is advance knowledge in this field. The project gives awareness of what is going on inside a differential by showing it to people using a rig As such, it is vital to attain this basic knowledge through this project. The purpose of this project is to design, fabricate a rear wheel drive differential simulation rig. The design is purely new and the idea is generated by other types of simulation rig. Material that is strong and could withstand the weight and the vibration of moving parts of the rig. Tests have been done to ensure the rig has meet the objective stated. The progress of this project needs documenting, as it can be a good reference for the next student who involve in this project as well as for a research related to the differential simulation rig. This report describes the project development of the first prototype of UMP rear wheel drive differential simulation rig.

ABSTRAK

Tujuan utama projek ini adalah untuk merekabentuk dan membina sebuah rig pameran differential pacuan roda belakang. Konsep projek ini adalah amat sukar difahami, dan jarang diberi perhatian ketika dalam kuliah maka projek ini member ilmu yang lebih mendalam tentang projek ini. Idea-idea yang dipraktikkan dalam projek ini adalah baru dan adalah hasil kerja saya dan supervisor projek ini. Bahanbahan yang digunakan adalah bahan yang tahan lasak dan mampu menampung berat seluruh sistem yang menggerakkan differential tersebut. Projek ini memerlukan dokumentasi yang baik kerana ia boleh menjadi panduan kepada pelajar-pelajar selepas ini dan juga kajian berkaitan dengan tajuk ini. Laporan ini menunjukkan projek pertama UMP berkaitan dengan ‘Rear Wheel Drive Differential Simulation Rig’
