Abstract

Engine mounting bracket assembly used in chassis front frame has been designed as a framework to support engine along with transmission member. It is a significant study which requires in-depth investigation to understand the structural characteristics and its dynamic behavior. This work presents and focuses on some Finite Element (FE) analyses performed such as normal mode analysis to determine the structural behavior. According to mode management chart the fundamental frequency is enhanced by changing the design to attain the benchmark. The most suitable model among the iterations is selected for further analyses the static analyses give the maximum structural stress condition under static loading condition. Most possible vents along Z-direction is considered. Most maximum stresses found at the bracket. So the structural fatigue analysis for Suspension mounting assembly is necessary.
