Design Analysis and Simulations of Components of an All-Terrain Vehicle 2019-28-0049

A single seater All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) is conceptualized in this research paper which covers the extent of design and simulations ranging from static structural, fatigue analysis, explicit dynamics etc. Solidworks and Ansys Workbench have been used as the tools for the simulation. The aim of this research was to design and fabricate a vehicle which is light weight (<200Kgs), easily manoeuvrable in harsh driving conditions and also scores high in affordability and maintenance. This paper also discusses the design consideration of the chassis, steering, suspension, braking, powertrain. Simulation results of components like hubs, knuckles, A-Arms, chassis are done with special focus on modelling based on real time forces and behaviours. MATLAB Simulink models are used and explained for the suspension & powertrain model. The vehicle was fabricated in-house using various fabrication methods of TIG Welding, Vertical CNC machines etc. The strength tests for the specimens of welding were checked for the safety of the chassis. On-track testing was for braking, steering and acceleration was done and further modifications were made in the design.
