The automobile industry is exploring polymeric material in order to obtain reduction of weight without significant decrease in vehicle quality and reliability. This reduction of weight of a vehicle directly impacts its fuel consumption. In this project, analysis of the Car wheel rim is carried out for weight reduction. The wheel rim is modeled by using standard parameters in Creo Parametric 2.0 software and analyzed to see the variations of deformation and stresses of the rim for different material such as Aluminum Alloy, PEEK (Polyether ether ketone), PEEK with 30% Glass fiber, PEEK-90 HMF 20, PEEK-90 HMF 40 by using the ANSYS 14.0 software.
