ABSTRACT
Finite element method has been implemented to modify the existing chassis of compressed air Vehicle (C.A.V.) which ultimately resulted in reduction of weight and equalization of stresses. For analysis, chassis of existing C.A.V. is selected. Analysis is carried out by modifying the existing chassis under the design load capacity. The static load in various members of chassis is identified. The finiteelement analysis of existing chassis revealed the stress distribution in chassis members. In this work, effort is made to reduce & equalize the stress levels by modifying the structural members of existing chassis so that advantage of weight reduction along with safe stress & its equalization can be obtained. Best modified structure is suggested.
