Chassis and suspension optimization on a Formula Student race car
“Formula Student Germany” is a design and engineering competition that brings together scientific and academic theory of technical colleges and universities with practical experience on a real race track. During a year’s time, the students design and build their own race car that has to comply with a set of competition rules.
The German team from the Hochschule Ravensburg-Weingarten was supported by imc Meßsysteme GmbH with one of their imc CANSAS-L-DCB8 modules. This measurement module was used to determine and investigate forces and strain that the car's suspension system was subjected to under real race conditions.
