Finite Element Analysis & Experimental Validation of lower control arm
Miss. P. B. Patil,  Prof. M. V. Kharade
It is important to analyze the suspension systems that have been designed to predict the behavior of the system than followed with improvements. In this paper, lower control arm of Indica Vista car is used for analysis. Modal analysis is done on control arm to find its natural frequency. Modes of vibration that lie within the frequency range of the operational forces always represent potential problems. Mode shapes are the dominant motion of a structure at every of its natural or resonant frequencies. Modes are an inherent property of a structure and do not depend upon the forces that act on it. Existing model is taken and optimized by removing material from high stressed region. Modal analysis is carried out in Ansys. This optimized model is fabricated and tested on FFT analyzer for validation.
