Abstract

Automotive chassis is a French word that was initially used to represent the basic structure. It is a skeletal frame on which various mechanical parts like engine, tires, axle assemblies, brakes, steering etc. are bolted. It gives strength and stability to the vehicle under different conditions. Automobile chassis is usually made of light sheet metal or composite plastics. It provides strength needed for supporting vehicular components and payload placed upon it. Automotive chassis or automobile chassis helps keep an automobile rigid, stiff and unbending. It ensures low levels of noise, vibrations and harshness throughout the automobile. Automobile chassis without the wheels and other engine parts is called frame. Automobile frames provide strength and flexibility to the automobile. The backbone of any automobile, it is the supporting frame to which the body of an engine, axle assemblies are affixed. Tie bars that are essential parts of automotive frames are fasteners that bind different auto parts together. Automotive frames are basically manufactured from steel. Aluminium is another raw material that has increasingly become popular for manufacturing these auto frames. In an automobile, front frame is a set of metal parts that forms the frame work which also supports the front wheels. In this project we are working on a chassis of the car. The chassis of the car is having more weight. Hence the weight will be reduced and the low loading components of chassis will be studied and thus they will be eliminated of geometrically optimised according to requirement. The study of chassis having low loading components supports will be reduced.
