Design and FEA Simulation of Vehicle Suspension System by Using ANSYS
Keywords:VSS, Finite Element Methods, Suspension System, ANSYS.
The suspension system is a combination of tires, springs, shock absorbers, and connectors that connect the vehicle to its wheels, allowing the vehicle to travel reasonably well. The primary goal of this research was to mitigate the suspension system's overall weight. And improve the total strength of the vehicle suspension system by using ANSYS. Calculated the total deformation and equivalent stress at different loading conditions and check the durability of the system by using the FEA method. The deployment of FEA (finite element analysis) to analyses the fatigue life and stationary stress of a Vehicle Suspension System resulted in a flexible architecture that can be utilized in Vehicle Suspension Systems implementations. The current carbon alloy VSS can be lowered to a compact Vehicle Suspension Systems with better durable capabilities and good mechanical qualities, as well as emitting low carbon dioxide (CO2) benefits. On comparing The titanium Ti-6Al-4V with Titanium Ti-13V-11Cr-3Al and cast iron, inside this analysis it is concluded that titanium Ti-6Al-4V outperforms than other two with regards to the material composition. Seeing as titanium Ti-6Al-4V has a greater yield stress on comparing to titanium Ti-13V-11Cr-3Al. The cast iron and titanium Ti-13V-11Cr-3Al have high densities while Titanium Ti-6Al-4V has low densities .
