Abstract

The goal of this project is to design a space frame for a mid-size production vehicle. The frame is designed for maximum torsional stiffness and minimum weight. Objectives of the project are to perform a stress analysis, stiffness analysis, vibration analysis, and to optimize the frame for torsional stiffness and weight using the commercial finite element code ANSYS.
