Abstract

This dissertation documents the steering and suspension design of the 2006 Formula SAE-A racer made at the University of Southern Queensland. The dissertation includes information on various steering and suspension systems and the various geometry set ups that define handling and performance of the Formula SAE-A racer. It also introduces Wm. C. Mitchell's suspension geometry software and how it can be used to analyse and optimise steering and suspension setups. An analysis of the 2005 Formula SAE-A racer to determine improvements that can be implemented into the 2006 design has been included followed by the design intentions of the 2006 Formula SAE-A racer.
