Chassis of an automobile or equipment is an important structure, which holds all the parts fitted on it and sustain all the static and dynamic loads imposed on it. So, it is necessary to design the chassis and its parts such that they are able to sustain all type of loads. Here, topology optimization method is applied to minimize the compliance of the chassis and solve the problem. Generally, Topology Optimization method is developed for compliance minimization. Solid Isotropic Material with Penalization (SIMP) using Optimality Criteria Algorithm is applied for Static response. Here, Topology Optimization is used to solve the static response problem of chassis. For achieving the best material distribution in the design domain we use the OPTISTRUCT for Topology Optimization problem. Validation is taken from the CAD model by using the reference of optimized model, and by analysing, it gives better results than earlier. The optimized model is verified by considering real load condition on the chassis.
