Abstract
Formula Student is an international inter-universities competition about designing and
building a single-seater racing car. One of the most important parts in a car is the
suspension system, from the tires to the shock absorbers. This Master Thesis’ report goes
through all these parts, looking to theory, different design options, the constraints (rules,
economical, packaging, etc) and the final decisions and designs. All motivated within the
suspension area in LURacing Team, for designing and building the LUR3, the third
Formula Student car of LTH-Lund University.
The initial idea was to design a completely new suspension for the new 2009 car, but for
timing and economical reasons it has been only a redesign of the existing... (More)

The initial idea was to design a completely new suspension for the new 2009 car, but for
timing and economical reasons it has been only a redesign of the existing suspension
system. But as it will be shown, new rules and frame will affect considerably the design
and most of the parts may be redesigned. (Less)
