The chassis of a car is a crucial part of the vehicle. The chassis serves as a framework for the body and other components of the vehicle. To handle shock, twist, vibration, and pressures, it should also be stiff and unyielding. Along with strength, bending stiffness is a significant component in chassis design for improved handling qualities. So, for the design of the Chassis, maximum equivalent stress, equivalent strain, deformation, safety factor, and so on are significant factors. In the automobile industry, weight loss is a major issue. Steel and aluminium are commonly used for chassis. Because of the higher density, these chassis variants are rigid and hefty, resulting in lower mileage and increased mechanical losses. The goal of this research is to minimise chassis weight by substituting inflexible solid chassis with I-section beehive chassis, as well as compare composite materials such as Kevlar, Aluminum Alloy. Because the densities of the materials are lower than those of conventional materials, the chassis weight is reduced, resulting in increased load bearing capacity, reduced fuel consumption, and improved overall vehicle performance. The original chassis and the beehive structure are modelled and compared. The best material suited among three materials is studied using static structural analysis to determine which type of chassis weighs the least. SOLIDWORKS is used to model the chassis, and ANSYS is used to do the analysis.
