Hello forum. I’m fairly new to FSAE and suspension design. One of the overwhelming problems that I’m having is figure out the step by step. Abstract. Design analysis of suspension especially for racecar suspension is very crucial to achieve maximum performance and handling. Suspension design. This article deals with design of Formula SAE Suspension by considering various loads and their simulation on each component of the system.

Page 1 of 2 1 2 Last Jump to page: I hope I haven’t said something stupid, if so I duly apologize. All times are GMT Only then will you have to worry with roll centers, roll stiffness, kinematics, motion ratio, dampers and suspensino things.

It should be very helpful too. Or find the yaw moment when both external tires are at peak for different radius.

There was a problem providing the content you requested

Get the basics right first, the details only after. I mean I’m just sharing what I know.

Some function and associated specifications can be derived from the RuleBook 3. Then go back to your model and edit it again and analyze once more and start iteration. I basically don’t know where to start there is so much information. You’ll have to loose something in order to win the other.


Read and understand about the bicycle model, the understand the behaviour of the model and the tire.

One of the overwhelming problems that I’m having is figure out the step by step process in designing the fsxe system. How far up the helix can you get in your FSAE tenure? Use the Bicycle model first for practice, then build to a Four Wheel 2D model. Tsae can’t truly design something if you can’t perform an analysis on it. After which; You should be able to transform the whole 2D drawing into 3D you have 2 planes and the third one is the top plane.

And start desogn on the front view geometry by drawing lines to express your wishbones and your unsprung mass and then move to the side view Results 1 to 10 of Study the pneumatic tires very well Then by changing tracks, ackermann, wheelbase, cg location, cornering stiffness, toe, etc you can see the effect the balance of the car in steady-state in this case. Don’t stop studying; Once you start design; Study more not less! User Name Remember Me?

shspension What are the functional requirements, for the suspension sub-system, these should emerge from the functional requirement of the car. It’s skipped forward to the final 5. If you could give me a list from start to finish 1,2,3,etc in terms of calculations and parameters to address, that would be great. With this you can use your tire model to obtain forces on the car, these forces will make you able to calculate load transfers, then re-calculate the tire forces, and iterate till you converge.


Suspension Design Step by Step Process. As in any design problem there are some step you should take before jumping into the details.

Suspension Design Step by Step Process

Introduce yourself properly; namecountry, team Another free one and quite successful is Wishbone. Know why before knowing how!! First; I want to tell you a tiny little thing This will also have to integrate with the kind of car you want to build overall tradeoffs aren’t the same with a 4cylinder than with a single, aero or non aero.
