Design and Analysis of a Hybrid Electric Vehicle Chassis 950179

Design of a hybrid electric vehicle chassis for the 1993 and 1994 HEV Challenge is presented. Computer finite element modeling and solid modeling techniques were used in developing the chassis. The main design parameters are presented and described. Final chassis design was tested, using finite element analysis, to ensure overall structural integrity and occupant safety. The chassis proved to be safe and reliable, under the rigors of competition driving, in the 1993 and 1994 HEV Challenges.
