BAJA SAE Chassis Analysis Using Ansys Mechanical

The chassis/roll cage is a major part in any automotive design since it is the structural backbone of various functional systems attached to it; it is responsible for carrying loads of different components; and it helps keep the driver safe. Analyzing a chassis in Ansys Mechanical helps to test different configurations to make it as stiff as possible with minimum manufacturing cost. In this course, FEA analysis of a roll cage (frame) is carried out by considering various conditions like front, side and rear impact, along with torsional, roll-over and modal incidents.
