For 1018 Carbon Steel : Cequiv=0.2+(0.9/6)=0.35 (Easily weldable)

Visit us at : www.saenitr.in

The TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding process generates heat from an electric arc maintained between a non consumable tungsten electrode and the part being welded. Gas is fed through the torch to shield the electrode and molten weld pool to prevent oxidization. Filler rod , same as that of base metal is added to the weld pool separately.

WELDING PROCESSTungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding is preferred for welding the parts of rollcage.

Visit us at : www.saenitr.inThe vehicle collides with a rigid wall at 60kmph (sixty kilometers per hour) and comes to a standstill in 0.2 seconds. We analyze the impact from four directions.This value of deceleration coupled with the full loaded mass of the vehicle which is approximately 350 kg (three hundred fifty kilograms) amounts to forces of approximately 29 kN (twenty nine kilo Newton).

The calculations are as follows :acceleration in meters per second squared=(60)*(5/18)*(1/0.2) =83.33Force is mass times acceleration. So force in Newton =350X83.33 =29166N ~29kNANSYS REPORT

Visit us at : www.saenitr.inFRONT IMPACT

The load is applied on the two horizontal front extremity members while keeping the rear plane fixed .Each force is having a magnitude of 14.9kN and directed inwards along the X-axis. The massive force no doubt bends the bars substantially, but it doesnt deform the drivers compartment much.

Max Stress= 4.56 x 108 pa.Min Stress= 0

Visit us at : www.saenitr.inSIDE IMPACT

A sideways impact is on that poses maximum threat to the drivers safety. This has the potential tendency of crushing the compartment space. We have applied a load of 29 kN at the side bracing upper member while keeping the other side fixed. Once again no doubt the deformation is present but the driver has a good chance of staying unhurt.

Max Stress= 2.64 x 109 pa.Min Stress= 0

Visit us at : www.saenitr.inREAR IMPACT

Similar to the front impact case, here also we have two 14.5 kN forces doing the damage. The forces are applied on the horizontal members inwards along the X-axis while the front extremity plane is kept fixed at its position. This does much less deformation because of the extensive frame work at the drivers back resting plane.

Max Stress= 9.21 x 108 pa.Min stress= 0

Visit us at : www.saenitr.inROLL OVER

The applied load for analysis is 3500N. From the Von-Mises diagrams we see that the long and mostly unsupported member has bent quite some amount but not enough to render the driver hurt. So all the analysis confirm the safety of the rollcage. The material employed for analysis is structural steel but the one to be employed for actual fabrication is the much tougher and lighter alloy steel which thus guarantees better results.

Max Stress= 2.36 x 108 pa.Min stress= 0

keep tires in firm contact with the road at all times and conditions.

prevent body squat (tilting down at rear) when accelerating.

prevent body dive (tilting down at front) when braking.

allow front wheels to turn for steering.

keep the wheels vertical and in correct alignment at all times.The primary purpose of a suspension system is to support the weight of the vehicle and give a smooth ride.It is desirable that it should also:

Visit us at : www.saenitr.inDouble wishbone suspension Double wishbone suspension is an independent suspension design using two parallel wishbone-shaped arms to locate the wheel. Each wishbone (or arm) has two mounting positions and attached to the knuckle via ball joints. The shock absorber and coil spring mount to the wishbones to control vertical movement. Double-wishbone designs allow to control the motion of the wheel throughout suspension travel, controlling such parameters as camber angle, caster angle, toe pattern, roll center height, scrub radius, scuff and many more.

Visit us at : www.saenitr.inWhy Double Wishbone ?It is fairly easy to work out the effect of moving each joint, so one can tune the kinematics of the suspension easily and optimize wheel motion. It decreases the cambering effect.It checks the body vibrations.Material to be used: MS tube Outer Diameter : 1 inchWall Thickness : 12 SWG

Visit us at : www.saenitr.inRoll center

The roll center is the point about which the vehicle rolls when cornering and is different for front and rear part. The front roll centre is usually lower than the rear, thereby transferring weight to the rear during cornering. In our design we have parallel wishbone system which results in the roll center appearing very near to the ground which is beneficial for stability during cornering.

It consists of steering wheel , steering shaft , rack and pinion gear box with gear ratio 18:1.Selected over recirculating ball steering system for its lesser complexity of design.

Visit us at : www.saenitr.inDesign calculationFOR THE DESIGN OF AXLES AND TIE ROD WE WILL USE MILD STEEL AND THE ENTIRE CALCULATION IS BASED ON THE FOLLOWING DATA:Material Property MagnitudeModulus of Elasticity 200GPaTensile Strength 455MPaYield Strength (tension) 250MPaPoisson's Ratio 0.29The maximum weight of the vehicle as per the specification is: 230Kg.Taking factor of safety into account while design let the load be: 250Kg.The aim is for the car to weigh approximately 250 kilograms and it is expected to generateabout one times the force of gravity in cornering. As stated previously these forceswere increased to give a suitable factor of safety. It was determined that a corneringforce of two times the force of gravity and a weight force of 250 kilograms would besuitable. After applying the weight force in the centre of the tyre and the cornering force acrossthe tread surface of the tyre, and working out the moments around the wheel bearingcentres, it was possible to work out the forces on the top and bottom suspensionmounting points to be approximately 2500N and 7500N ..(2500+2500*2) respectively.STEERING RATIO:It is defined as the angle made by the steering wheel for each 1deg movement of wheel.It has been found that car requires 580deg of steer wheel for 35deg movement of wheel .Thus the steering ratio is: 580/35 or 16.5:1. It should be within 12 to 20 .So the design is safe.Minimum Turn Radius( as peTrack (T)= 48 inchWHEEL BASE (W)=87 inch=35deg.R1= T/2 + W/sin =175.68 inch=446.23 cm=4.5m(approx)
