Abstract: In this report, the intricate process of the design and development stages of a carbon-fiber composite monocoque chassis of the NTU solar car has been emphasized in detail. By building on the success of the previous car (Nanyang Venture II), the new and improved car (Nanyang Venture V) has been designed to participate in the World Solar Challenge 2011, a solar car race held in Australia that spans across a distance of 3021 km from Darwin to Adelaide. As the design and development of a carbon-fiber composite monocoque chassis involved multiple intricate stages, the mechanical systems of the solar was designed and analyzed first before integrating it to the monocoque chassis. Mechanical systems consisting of the steering systems, suspension systems and braking systems were designed and optimized based on their respective design intentions and constraints.
