Abstract
The automotive industry constantly strives to enhance vehicle safety, performance, and efficiency. One critical component in this pursuit is the steering knuckle joint, which connects the steering system to the suspension of the vehicle. In this study, we investigate the structural modification of steering knuckle joints using austempered ductile iron (ADI) to improve their mechanical properties and Austempered ductile iron offers a compelling combination of high strength, ductility, and fatigue resistance, making it an attractive material for critical automotive components. According to the analysis results, material can be added to parts that are subjected to higher stress than the safety factor permits. Material can also be removed from low stress areas, thus, helping to reduce the component weight.
