Design, Static and Dynamic analysis of an All-Terrain   Vehicle Chassis and Suspension System

Design, Static and Dynamic analysis of an All-Terrain Vehicle Chassis and Suspension System

The objective of the study is to design and analyze on static and dynamic failures of the chassis for All - Terrain Vehicle. Material selected for the chassis based on physical strength, cost and availability. The roll cage is designed accordingly to provide all the automotive sub-systems. A software model is prepared in Solid works software and for finite Element analysis the design is tested against all modes of failure by conducting various simulations and stress analysis with the aid of Ansys Software (14.0). Based on the result obtained from these tests the design is modified accordingly. After successfully designi ng the roll cage, it is ready for fabricated. The vehicle is required to have a combination frame and roll cage consisting of steel members. The ATV should run continuously for four hours in various terrains, especially loose and uneven roads with high bumps, deeper potholes and muddy terrain on the surface. The input from the road surface to the ATV is hard/soft and always varying its rattle space with body and suspension, longitudinal acceleration in forward motion and lateral acceleration when cornering. This property results reduced in steering stability, controlling and handling performance of the ATV by drivers. So we are giving a cost effective design of an All-Terrain Vehicle Frame and suspension system. Since the chassis is the integral part of an automotive, it should be strong and light weight. Thus, the chassis design becomes very important. Typical capabilities on basis of which these vehicles are judged are braking test, bumping, hill climbing, pulling, acceleration and maneuverability on land as well as shallow waters. The aim is to design a frame with ultimate strength to show that the design is safe, rugged and easy to maneuver. Design is done and carried out the linear static and dynamic failures of frame and suspension system.

Design and analysis of automotive chassis considering cross section And material

The analysis using finite element techniques, weight of chassis frame can be optimized and it is feasible to analyse the modified chassis frame before manufacturing (Anand Gosavi et al., 2014). The model for vehicle that considers the elastic characteristic of frame was applied to the rear frame of articulated dump truck, it was confirmed that this analysis can be used to predict the bending and torsion stresses of frames (Haval Kamal Asker, 2012). The automotive chassis was optimized with constraints of maximum shear stress, equivalent stress and deflection of chassis under maximum load, also a sensitivity analysis is carried out for weight reduction (Monika, et al., 2013). The mathematical stress analysis of a platform integrated structure mounted on vehicle chassis designed for unconventional type of loading pattern was described (Deulgaonkar, 2012). The fatigue study and life prediction on the chassis in order to verify the safety of this chassis during its operation using Finite Element Method (FEM) was discussed in detail (Kurdi, et al., 2008). The modifications of existing bracket have resulted in reduction of stress values leading to safe design was investigated (Balbirsingh, et al., 2013).

Design And Analysis Of A Lightweight Chassis For Human Powered Vehicle

Design And Analysis Of A Lightweight Chassis For Human Powered Vehicle

For the weight of the HPV, there are four elements or characteristics that need to be considered which are material, parameter of frame structure, shape of frame structure, and design of the chassis. These elements will affect the mass of the chassis in order to get a lightweight chassis. As for the toughness of the chassis, those elements also play an important role to produce the value of bending and torsional stiffness, total deformation and Von-mises stress in static analysis. Static analysis will determine displacement, stress or component that do not cause significant damping effect and inertia (Anurag et al., 2016). The Von-mises stress is used by engineers and designers to check whether their design can withstand the applied loads or not. When the value of Von-mises stress in particular material is higher than the yield stress of the material, the design is considered failed.

restructured. The dynamic stress test of the whole truck was implemented to obtain the peak stress of the mainly forced area, which was compared with the simulated stress. It was found out that the error was allowable so that the accuracy of the finite element model was definitely ensured. The quasi- static stress analysis method was employed to acquire stress influence coefficient under unit load, which was associated with load histories of the frame to get the dangerous stress area. The fatigue life of the frame was calculated on the basis of Palmgren–Miner damage theory. It was turned out that the minimum life area of the frame is located at the frame joints of suspension, which matches the practice. More recently, Bhat et al. in 2014 [9], redesigned a modified chassis for tractor trolley.

consists of internal framework that supports man-made object. It is the under part of the vehicle which consists of frame and running gear like engine, transmission system, suspension system etc. The type of chassis used in the project is ladder frame chassis. Modeling And Design of the chassis is done through a advanced CAD (AutoCAD, Catia, & Analysis software . The design and analysis of the chassis is done by identifying the location of high stress areas. Ladder frame chassis consists of two symmetrical rails and cross members connecting them to provide strength to different components of vehicle system. This type of chassis is mostly used in heavy duty vehicles like trucks. It provides a good beam resistance because of its continuous rail from front to rear. The reason for using this type of chassis is that here it is easier to change the design without having to change the chassis thereby saving overall design time. The disadvantage with using this type of chassis is that it has poor torsion stiffness, higher fuel consumption and also heavier than a unibody. As a result chassis has been designed in a way to reduce vibration, increase strength and optimize the weight of the chassis.

A Review on Design & Analysis of All Terrain Vehicle Chassis

A Review on Design & Analysis of All Terrain Vehicle Chassis

As we have seen in most of the papers the design and manufacturing of different types of chassis has been discussed the main focus is given on the strength of the material which will be used for the design. The designing software used has been CATIA, Pro-E while the analysis is done on the ANSYS workbench. In the paper published by (Wang Guoqing) the analysis of all types has been performed mainly the stress analysis of the chassis. An improved scheme is put forward by analyzing the dangerous part of the chassis. The goal of all the designers has been to build a low cost ATV but not by compromising with its strength and other parameters. Most of the paper have been about the various analysis that have been carried out to create a chassis that is optimal on all the required parameters. (Denish S. Mevawala) This paper has mainly focused on the roll cage buildup. The aesthetics of the vehicle have been taken care of while designing. We have seen that the papers reveal a study of frontal impact, side impact, rear impact. The experiments conducted are very well planned according to the design considerations and parameters and made ensured that none of the components fail the test or break in the process of experimentation. (C.I.Chatzikomis) have compared the performance of a vehicle without any control system, a vehicle with ESC, a vehicle with 4WS and a vehicle with both systems. The objective has been to design the vehicle using the SAE rule book for various papers throughout the survey. The causes of fatigue failure in the ATV have been verified over and over and an optimal solution has been derived. A high performance ATV is all that is desired at the end of all the process. A prototype has generally been mode first in an attempt to check the vehicle for all the elements that have to be checked. (Hirak Patel) In his paper emphasizes on the weight reduction of the vehicle by carrying out a sensitivity analysis. The work has been focused towards the optimization of chassis with constraints of maximum shear stress and deflection of chassis. Thus, most of the paper have been about the various analysis that have been carried out to create a chassis that is optimal on all the required parameters.

Design and Structural Analysis of Chassis

Design and Structural Analysis of Chassis

Abstract - A Vehicle is a Structural Assembly which consists of many components coupled together to make the vehicle to run on initial conditions as well as under various load conditions. Vehicles are designed to carry loads like trucks, buses and cars. Different types of vehicles with wide variety of its applications are present in the market which capacity varies from 1Tonne to 40Tonnes and more. The present scenario in automotive industry is an increase in demand of trucks not only on the cost and weight aspects but also on improved complete vehicle features and overall work performance. The chassis plays an important role in the design of any truck. The chassis design in general is a complex methodology and to arrive at a solution which yields a good performance is a tedious task. Since the chassis has a complex geometry and loading patterns, there is no well-defined analytical procedure to analyze the chassis. So the numerical method of analysis is adopted, in which Finite Element Technique is most widely used method. Vehicle chassis is an important part which supports the major load of the vehicle assembly. As vehicle chassis plays a vital role, its design has to be subjected to Structural Analysis to validate against all the possible cases of load applications and failures to strengthen the design.

Design Optimization of Sports Utility Vehicle Chassis

Design Optimization of Sports Utility Vehicle Chassis

In this project a chassis for a SUV was designed using SolidWorks 2016 edition and the designed model was analysed using ANSYS R15.0. Initially three chassis with different side member cross sections were designed. Then a force equivalent to the load acting on the chassis of value 19122.97 N was applied. From the analysis results it was found out that chassis with side members having rectangular cross section has minimum total deformation. Then the chassis was modified by increasing the thickness of side member cross section from 5 mm to 6.3 mm. The weight of chassis was then increased by 36.45 kg. Total deformation of the modified and initially designed chassis were analysed by applying a shear force of 10000 N in opposite directions acting along X axis and it was found out from the analysis results that modified chassis has better resistance to shear forces by 26.06% as compared to the initially designed chassis. Then three different materials such as ASTM A710 steel, Carbon steel AISI 4130 and ASTM A302 alloy steel were applied and the total deformation values under a load of value 19122.97 N were calculated and it was found out that chassis applied with ASTM A302 alloy steel has the minimum total deformation. Thus ASTM A302 alloy steel was selected as the chassis material and the modal analysis of the chassis was carried out. The first six natural frequencies of the chassis was found out. Also the total deformation values at these six natural frequencies were found out. The analysis data obtained from modal analysis was used to perform harmonic response analysis and different design parameters such as total deformation, directional deformation, equivalent elastic strain, equivalent stress, normal stress and normal elastic strain were evaluated and the results were tabulated.
