Spindle, Optimization, Stress Analysis, EN8, Redesign Knuckle


Steering Knuckle is linked with other linkages and supports the vertical weight of the car, hence plays major role in many direction control of the vehicle. It requires high quality, durability and precision. The main objective of this paper is to explore performance of the steering knuckle. This can be achieved by performing a detailed load analysis. Therefore, this study has been dealt with two steps. First part of the study involves the determination of loads acting on the steering knuckle through hand calculations. Then the stress analysis will be performed using analysis software and based on it optimization of steering knuckle will be suggested. This may also improve the depth knowledge of its function and performance in terms of durability and quality.
