Chassis is one of the important parts that used in automobile industries. It is a rigid structure that forms a skeleton to hold all the major parts together. Chassis is a major component in a vehicle system. It should be rigid enough to withstand the shock, twist, vibration and other stresses. Along with strength, an important consideration in chassis design is to have adequate bending stiffness for better handling characteristics. So, maximum stress, maximum equilateral stress and deflection are important criteria for the design of the chassis. This work involved Transient analysis to determine key characteristics of a chassis. The static characteristics include identifying location of high stress area. This paper presents the Transient load analysis of TATA LPK 2518 truck ladder chassis using ANSYS workbench and stress, Weight reduced by optimization in design. This has been carried out with limited modifications. We have taken Aluminium Alloy 6063-T6 for the chassis. Load applied on chassis is 9.26 N. The necessary design changes required to enhance the load carrying capacity of the vehicle has been recommended successfully.
