ABSTRACT
Tractor Trailers are very popular and cheaper mode of goods transport in rural as well as urban area. But these trailers are manufactured in small scale to moderate scale industry; due to which design of chassis is at primary level. In Present work finite element method has been implemented to modify existing chassis of tractor trailer which ultimately results in reduction of weight and manufacturing cost. For analysis, a 8 ton 4 wheeler trailer manufactured by Awachat Industries. Ltd.Wardha is selected. The finite element analysis of existing chassis revealed the stresses distribution on chassis members. So, an effort is made to modify the structure of existing chassis so that advantage of weight reduction along with safe stress can be obtained.
