VAN FRAME STRUCTURAL EVALUATION 790988

This paper describes the structural evaluation of a van production chassis frame, a light weight frame design and four other modified production frames. Static structural properties were determined by a combination of laboratory joint stiffness measurements and a finite element model incorporating empirical stiffness values. The finite element analysis results are compared to laboratory frame bending and torsion measurements.
