Abstract

The epicentre goal of this study is to optimize design and analysis a quad bike chassis. This is
a platform that comprises ofvarious automotive components like chassis for which more durable design is
a primary requirement as these vehicles are moreconcentrated on rider safety parameters and all other
requirements. Along with this, an additional parameter considered while designingwas to keep the overall
price as minimal as possible. In order to accomplish this task, front impact test was conducted and
supported withthe aid of theoretical calculations. A workaround was introduced to avoid going for high
strength material and obtaining the requiredfactor of safety using the low cost and strength material. To
attain adequate beam strength in prior bumpers it has generally beennecessary to provide reinforcement,
often in the form of added bar structure or the section mass has been substantially increased. Inorder to
effectively achieve this requirement, we aimed at introducing a pair of dashpot dampers which aimed at
absorbing the higherimpact.Below studyshows thefeasibilityin termsofefficiency
