Steering Upright, CATIA V5, 3D Modelling, 2D Drawing, ANSYS 19.
A steering upright is one of the vital components in vehicle dynamics which links all suspension components between the wheel and therefore the vehicle. Upright provides the linkage between the upper & lower ball joints. The upright connects components as an example, control arms, steering arms, suspension springs, shock absorber, brake disc, wheels & tire. Steering upright is a part of mechanical system which contains the wheel hub and assembles to the suspension components. It's the pivot point of the steering and mechanical system, which allows the front wheels to show & more. Agenda of this project paper is to design & analysis of steering upright and study the scope of further optimization work, experimental validation to achieve weight reduction along with required strength and stiffness. Optimized design of upright is necessary with correct material selection further as valid finite element analysis. Optimization is accomplished considering static stress, strain and total deformation analysis with acceptable material selection. Modal and Fourier analysis is to be performed to see natural frequencies and deformation.
