I want to design a chassis for car ?
I want to know what all i have to consider for design of the chassis and my main question is what material is suitable for a car ?
Many materials are involved with car design.
Consider the chassis, the function of the vehicle.
Is it ladder chassis, space frame, monocoque, or a mixture of types.
Is the vehicle sports , rally, passenger, off road.
Materials, mild steel rectangular hollow section, COS cold drawn steel, 4130 chrome moly tube, aluminium sheet or steel sheet, welded.
This really is determined by form function and budget.
