Abstract

Grand Prix Motorcycle Racing (MotoGP) refers to the premier class of motorcycle racing events held on racing circuits sanctioned by FIM (Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme). Motorcycles used in these events have a power of about 260 bhp and can reach upto a top speed of 316 km/h ; under power-cornering maneuvers the motorcycle is subjected to monumental loads, hence every component of motorcycle must be precisely designed in analysed in order for it to endure the extreme loads. The aim of this research is to design a swingarm component for MotoGP standard motorcycle using Shape Optimisation technique (under multiaxial loading scenario). Since weight is a salient factor, Aluminium 7075 T6 is selected as the component material because of its structural rigidity and strength to weight ratio.
