Firenze Race Team uses HyperWorks to Maximize the Component’s Stiffness/Weight Ratio of its Formula Student Race Car

To determine the optimal solution and to meet the requirements regarding both, performance and low weight at the same time, is a big
development challenge. To further improve the car’s performance the team selected those vehicle components for a redesign that looked
most promising in terms of reducing weight while increasing stiffness. One of the chosen components was a suspension rocker. Here the team
strove not only for a weight reduction but also for an increased component stiffness to improve the suspension system‘s precision for a better
handling performance.
