Abstract

Conventional designs of bus bodies have more weight and which will affect the carrying capacity, performance and resulting higher fuel consumption. This project describes a new approach and specific design procedure for more lightweight bus body design. The purpose of this project is to redesign the parameters like gauges, materials, geometry/shapes, topology variables, weld pitch, joints for improving the structure so that the total weight of the bus is reduced. A light weight design of bus body structure is designed and structural analysis of the body structure under different load conditions is done. The modeling will be done on solidworks 2014 and analysis part will be done on ANSYS 14.
