Abstract:   (1431 Views)
Due to the importance of vehicle weight reduction which can reduce fuel consumption and air pollution, changes are made in vehicles. In heavy trucks with payload limitations, a lighter trailer can provide higher load-carrying capacity and more economical benefits. Composite materials are a good candidate for material exchange due to their resistance to various conditions and low weight compared to steel. In this paper, the trailer material made of steel will be replaced by composite so that strength density will remain the same. For this purpose, the finite element method is used for static and dynamic analyses. At first, the model of a two-axle trailer is developed using SolidWorks software. Then, using standard loading and failure theories (Tsai-Hill, Tsai-Wu), the number of composite layers and their suitable angles are selected for the chassis. Finally, the loaded trailer's static, modal, and dynamic analysis are performed using the finite element method with a composite material. Results show that 17 layers of polymer composite with glass fibers with 0-0 angle can reduce 17.7 percent weight.
