Formatted abstract
This thesis presents a design for a hybrid monocoque space frame chassis for the University of Queensland Formula SAE team. It has been undertaken to further research and develop composite manufacture and design within the team. The significance of this is to improve the performance of the Formula SAE vehicle by using the characteristics of a monocoque to reduce the weight and increase the chassis torsional stiffness.

The scope of this thesis takes into consideration the design of a monocoque and the critical interfaces to it, such as; rear space frame, suspension components and the impact attenuator. The chassis is being designed in relation to the 2013 Formula SAE rules and in conjunction with: Design Validation, Material Testing and Manufacture of a Monocoque Chassis by Christopher Simpson.
