Abstract
Now-a-days weight reduction is one of the most important topics in automotive industry due to stringent emission norms. Also, by optimizing design, weight reduction can be achieved along with reduction in cost and without affecting performance. In this paper weight reduction using hard point optimization is worked for suspension systems. Weight reduction is divided in two approaches. First approach elaborates on methods to identify the proper load paths for load transfers. Second approach elaborates on optimization of hard points to reduce loads transfer from wheel to tire. Finally optimized hard points is proposed which summarizes on % side load reduction, also this reduces the weight of knuckle a-arm.
