Keywords:ATV, Double wishbone, Independent suspension, Optimization, SAE BAJA, Suspension geometry, Structural analysis
An off-road vehicle is a four wheeler car specially design and manufactured for all types of terrain. It is basically single driver car, capable to sustain in harsh road conditions which is designed for a competitive purpose. This paper is based on the design and development of a suspension system for an off-road vehicle which is designed and manufactured for an SAE BAJA INDIA competition. An off-road vehicle requires stability, better handling properties and good level performance. So the aim is to develop a suspension system which will give an output of good Performance and complete endurance for the vehicle. While designing suspension system one should consider all the Factors and parameters which are affecting on performance of a vehicle. This Paper includes all those parameters and also the methodology which is necessary while designing and developing a suspension system. Suspension system plays vital role of eliminating vibrations, providing stability to ATV and comfort to driver. The design of suspension System is optimized in such a way that it will results in a better maneuverability and ride comfort. This report consists of design considerations, design Requirements for system and step by step methodology to design a suspension system of ATV.
