A single seater All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) is conceptualized in this paper which covers the extent of designing and simulations ranging from static structural, fatigue analysis, explicit dynamics etc. Solidworks and Ansys Workbench have been used as the tools for the simulation. Our aim was to design and fabricate a vehicle which is light weight (<200Kgs), easily maneuverable in harsh driving conditions and also scores high in affordability and maintenance.
This report also contains the design consideration of the chassis, steering, suspension, braking, powertrain. Simulation results of components like hubs, knuckles, A-Arms, chassis are done with special focus on modelling based on real time forces and behaviors. MATLAB Simulink models are used and explained for the suspension model.
The vehicle was fabricated in-house using various fabrication methods of TIG Welding, Vertical CNC machines etc. The strength tests for the specimens of welding were checked for the safety of the chassis. The vehicle was tested on tracks for braking, steering and acceleration and further modifications were made in the design to incorporate the iterations.
