Optimization of a Race Car Carbon Chassis

In this activity we present a case of optimization of a race car chassis made of composite materials. In particular, the focus of this study is on the combination of different CFRP materials and many load cases for the validation of the optimization tool for racing and automotive applications. Results are compared with the previous ones obtained with the current calculation approach, highlighting relative pros and cons.
