The chassis department is one of the most versatile in all of Formula Student team Delft, using the expertise of many studies, from mechanical engineering to industrial design. The chassis is designed in detail, incorporating factors such as weight, stiffness and ergonomics. In this process making trade offs is key, for example you can make the car as stiff as you want, but by doing so you're adding weight, so finding the perfect balance between advantages from stiffness and disadvantages from weight is essential to the performance of the car.
