The objective of this project is to reduce the weight of a wheel without affecting its primary functions such as fitment, air flow and fatigue life, the design is made with the concept of variable thickness, means reducing thickness wherever the stresses are low and also addressing the failures in the field. However, prototype manufacturing makes the validation process laborious, costly and time consuming. Finite Element Method (FEM) has emerged as a resourceful tool for analyzing various components under a variety of operating conditions. It is being used to predict the critical points bearing the highest stress in a wheel. This project focuses on the design of variable thickness disc and validation of the same using FEM and Rig testing. The analysis will be carried out on existing and proposed designs and the salient features were compared.
