Analysis of LCV Chassis for Optimizing Weight by Using FEM
Keywords:chassis, FEA, LCV, Carbon Fiber
Chassis is the component of an automobile that acts as the frame to support the vehicle body. This study main objective of the study reduce the overall weight of the chassis with help of FEA method. Increase the overall strength of the chassis. Calculated the stress and deformations at different loading conditions. Proposed the best suitable material for chassis design. This results are the total weight of the chassis reduce up to 37 kg. And total deformation and equivalent stress was 26.285mm and10.441mpa. The FEA Analysis Of Tata Ace Chassis design is built with low density carbon fiber (1298Kg/m3) since it is a less weight and has an excellent strength weight ratio and shows good bending and torsion stiffness comparing with other material hence FEA Analysis Of Tata Ace Chassis with carbon fiber material is a best alternative design for the light weight chassis design.
