Analysis Of Steerting Wheel Armature For Static Loading
Nithish N,  Shanthala N L
The main objective of this project is to analyse and modify the present import steering wheel Armature to meet Regulatory Standards. In order to reduce the cost of Steering wheel Armature, localization of part production and to find an alternative raw material initiative was taken up. The Material Selection Process of finding an alternative Raw Material and its behaviour to the existing design is to analysed.
In order to carry out the finite element analysis, 3D model is created by using Catia V6 cad software. Meshing and Boundary conditions are set using Hypermesh. The solver used is LS Dyna. In this project we are focusing only on Static loading condition as it plays a vital in Product Validation.
During the Static Loading analysis of steering wheel armature for the Selected alternative Raw material and with the existing design, the Armature is unable to meet to the safety regulations as defined in the standards(JASO C-713,refer appendix-1). Modifications is done for the existing Steering wheel Armature by increasing the width of the spoke to rim joining section as it the most loading baring section of armature in order to make the newly selected Raw material meet the tests . And the modifications done to improve the stiffness have to be within the customer defined Mass Moment of Inertia. After the design modifications, the armature is now meeting the regulations, it is to be validated experimentally through axial stiffness test, no cracks under a displacement of 50mm. The is validated for static and found OK.
