Abstract [en]

Chassis is the primary structural component of an automobile. It is the main supporting

structure of a vehicle to which all other systems like braking, suspension and differential are

attached. In this thesis, a methodology for L7e category vehicle chassis design and structural

stability analysis is presented. The present car being developed at Uniti Sweden AB is classified

as L7e category vehicle as per the European Union, therefore the chassis developed in this

thesis considers the specific characteristics that vehicles under this category demands for.

A literature study is carried out to review various existing designs of vehicle chassis, latest

innovations and advanced materials used to manufacture the same. The various types of forces

and stresses commonly acting on chassis structures are analyzed and their effects on the

vehicle is understood. After completing literature study, several findings are listed in a

systematic manner, by providing ample arguments to justify each of them. The pro-con analysis

is conducted to evaluate merits and demerits of each alternative type of chassis and the material

to manufacture it. The most essential design criteria are derived from the QFD (Quality

function deployment) which then acts as important guidelines during the actual design process.

Structural chassis frame is designed as per the design criteria, using the CAD software

CATIAV5R19 and the structural stability of the same is tested and analyzed using ANSYS 15.0

software. From the results of these analysis tests the static structural stability of the design is confirmed.
