Chassis & Aerodynamics Department

This department designs and constructs the structure of the car. You often have to analyze whether an assembly
or part can withstand the loads it bears and come up with solutions that will facilitate this desiderate. You may also run simulations on the aerodynamic components.
Aerodynamics and Mechanical Engineers need to work closely together because we need our car to fly high and race low.
