About

Hi! My name is Shrihan, currently a Junior at Dougherty Valley High School. My main interest is cars and my intended career path is in the automotive engineering field. This is why I chose to create and my publish my research website, Learn your Car, hope you visit it and enjoy the experience! [learnyourcar.wordpress.com](https://learnyourcar.wordpress.com)

Abstract or project description

Engineering systems in modern cars have become so complex that collecting and understanding information about them is exceedingly difficult. This research website, Learn Your Car, will eliminate search time by providing concise information in one convenient location. A modern car consists of three sections that are thoroughly engineered; the powertrain, chassis, and bodywork elements. Although modern cars' layouts and engineered components differ in numerous ways, they all share common characteristics with one another(like same structure for engine, transmission, electric motor type, and more). The website is structured in a way that connects all these different engineered systems, and unites them into a common layout. For example, a user navigating this website may see that there are three different types of hybrid powertrains available, but their components like electric motors and batteries, are all composed of similar features. Using this approach, the user can interact with the various configurations of a modern car's layout, while understanding the essentials of each component and how they all form a common linkage with one other. From a single Google search, a reader can use this website to gain a deeper understanding on automotive engineering, the flow of all vehicle components working together, as well as the similarities and differences between them.
