I'm not but i may be able to help.jagato00 wrote:I'm interested in the design of the carbon composite monocoque chassis so much.
If there is an engineer who is involved in that kind of development project or has some information, please share your knowledge with us.
There is no sole monocoque designer (atleast at t he moment and hopefully never). Every team needs to design their own chassis.jagato00 wrote:What company is designing and manufacturing the monocoque chassis for the f1 team?
(LOLA, Dallara, ATR, ACG, Gurit... any other else?)?
F1 car's tend to use aluminum honeycomb as reinforcement, and i think that the super cars you listed only used a carbon composite tub. However, There is a better material in that CFRP Honeycomb, is stronger and, I think better crash structure properties.jagato00 wrote:What is the difference between the monocoque chassis of the f1 car and that of supercars such as CarreraGT, Enzo, Veyron, Zonda??
Not sure Catia comes to mind, but no doubt some kind of FEA programjagato00 wrote:Which kind of software do they mostly use to develop a new composite chassis?
(PATRAN laminate modeler, FiberSim... something like that?)?
Well, the chassis have to undergo a structural test for the safety of the driver. Regardless of the process used. I believe they can use any kind of material for their chassis, as long as it meets the FIA's standards. BUT Carbon is pretty much the best bang for your buck in F1.jagato00 wrote:Is there any regulation for the material used?
(regulation for fiber strength, resin property, honeycomb property?)?
Yes, New chassis every year, as well as new suspension components.jagato00 wrote:How long can it be used? Do they consider the fatigue life ususally?
Well... The research area of my lab. was the application of composite materials as a machine component... composite boring bar, aluminum hybrid drive shaft, robot hand and so on... also we handled the adhesion problem.flynfrog wrote:it scares me you can get a Phd in composites and not have an idea how to build a car chassis its a glorified box. In the end composite structures are composite structures. They are all build pretty much the same way
