Design and Simulation of Components of an All-Terrain Vehicle 2020-28-0486
This paper conceptualizes the design of a single-seater All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV). The aim was to design and fabricate a lightweight, high strength vehicle (under 175kgs) which can withstand harsh terrains, while being affordable and easily manufacturable. This paper covers the extent of design and simulations ranging from static structural, fatigue analysis, explicit dynamics etc. have been carried out. Tools such as SolidWorks, Ansys and MATLAB have been used throughout the process.
The report is divided into individual subsystems, such as Chassis, Braking, Powertrain, Suspension and Steering. All the design considerations and objectives of each of the subsystems have been included. Simulation results of various components such as the Chassis, A-arms, Knuckles, Hubs and integral mounts have been attached with focus on modelling based on real-time forces and behaviors.
