The roll cage is a major part in automotive design since it is the structural backbone of various functional systems attached to it. It is responsible for providing sufficient space around the driver and keeping the driver safe during normal operations or collisions. The chassis needs to be designed by keeping in mind the ease of manufacturing, reliability, and serviceability.
In this course, you will learn how to carry out dynamic analysis of a Baja Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) roll cage. The goal is to ensure that the roll cage of an off-road vehicle will be safe in all conditions. In this course, the roll cage geometry editing process is demonstrated to extract acceptable model for analysis. Then, various aspects of the impact analysis are covered with respect to acceleration and incurred stress to ensure better strength, as well as performance of the vehicle in various dynamic conditions.
