This peer-reviewed SAE paper shows the application of the True-Load methodology to a student SAE Baja car. The UW-Milwaukee students were able to use the loading from True-Load to reduce the weight of their suspension arm by 25%. For the students this was the first time they had ever built a real FEA model, used a strain gauge, or performed data collection. They were able to complete the project in 6 weeks with coaching from Wolf Star Technologies.
