Crimson Racing has a history spanning nearly two decades with Formula SAE. However, the past five years have easily been the most successful in team history. Why? A concerted focus on understanding and justifying everything on the car without over complicating it.
There are many tools and programs that can be used to achieve this goal on various systems, but for structural components in the suspension system, Altair HyperWorks™ has been the most prolific. By using the Altair MotionSolve™ program in HyperWorks, Crimson Racing can evaluate the expected suspension component loads under any given driving scenario and adjust as needed.
