Abstract [en]

The Formula Student team participates in a competition every year where the car they

build gets tested and rated according to strict rules and regulations. The more empirical

testings are done in order to validate the data used to design various parts of the car, the

higher the score in the competition. Until now the students have only had the opportunity

to test the cars performance in general and not been able to go into detail with the forces

acting on links and other parts during specic load scenarios.

This project is aimed at discerning the most suitable intruments to empirically measure

the forces acting upon the suspension system as well as learning to use the ADAMS

software in order to calculate the said forces on the suspension links of a Formula Student

Team car. The collected data from the empirical tests will be used to validate the

team's Matlab code and ADAMS model, as well as to decide if the links included in the

suspension system are designed properly. Due to some technical diculties, the empirical

testing was not perfomed in time to be included in the report. However, a full vehicle

assembly was created using ADAMS model and the Matlab code was validated.
