I require FEA testing done on some CAD diagrams. I can provide these diagrams for review if requested.
These diagrams represent some front-end suspension components for a passenger vehicle. Specifically wheel spindles and upper/lower control arms.
Testing specifically to meet VSB14 requirements - so would prefer to work with someone that has experience in this area and Australian guidelines.
Throughout Australia, we are to abide by the rules set out on VSB14. for modified vehicles
While named as guidelines, they are legislated in the state of Victoria. To this end, various load cases are specified on anything other than OE suspension and steering systems, and proof of compliance may be obtained via physical testing or FEA.
The primary concern would be the strength of the stub axle/upright, and the lower control arm. To a lesser extent the upper control arm.
3 COMPONENT STRESS LEVELS
The stress levels of any production component in the suspension system must not be increased
over that at which it has been demonstrated to be capable of satisfactory operation.
Stress analysis should be carried out for modified or specially fabricated components and the
following load conditions are suggested as a guide:
• bump loads: 4g vertical;
• rut loads: 1g vertical combined with 0.6g lateral; and
• skid loads: 2g vertical combined with 1.2g skid (longitudinal).
Overturning loads: 2g vertical combined with 2.5g overturning; where g is the static load at the
tyre contact patch when the vehicle is stationary. The stress levels that are acceptable under
these conditions will depend on the materials and the number of times in the life of the vehicle
that the loads can be expected to occur. Other factors which can affect suspension loads and
should be considered are:
• rim offset;
• combination of braking at lock while striking an obstacle;
• steering scrub radius; and
• the effect of steering system loads on the suspension components.
