guys...we want to know about the forces acting on the upright in car? what are the formulas we have to consider? plz suggest me in this

RE: automotive

Please use much more descriptive titles for your posts.

For a circuit car you might use 3 2 1 g, for a production car it will be more.

If you don't know what 3 2 1 is then you need to do some research.

What sort of vehicle are you designing?

RE: automotive

I really am starting to suspect we have an inquisitive teenager here just asking questions for amusement. Please prove me wrong with well thought out headings, clear, concise and precise posts and some logical reasons for asking.

RE: automotive

I am sorry I dint come up well but I will soon give u the details.

RE: automotive

sir, sorry for my previous post...if don't mind plz suggest about al 7075 t6 is better for upright and hub manufacturing..bcoz, it has many more good qualities than alloy steels..

RE: automotive

Yes it does. It is a pretty reasonable material to work with. For a prototype or a racing car it might be acceptable.

But, what is its elongation at failure?

Until you tell us what sort of vehicle this is is we are basically guessing at suitable slutions. Which is largely a waste of time.

RE: automotive

the parts i mention before are, for atv vehicles...their elongation at the failure is 5 to 8 percent ...weight of the vehicle is aprox 350 kg ....or they any materials good rather than this......


RE: automotive

I don't like using materials with elongation less than 10%. Especially on components I'm counting on to separate my tender carcass from rocks, trees, and the ground.
