The chassis is considered to be the most significant component of an automobile. It is the most crucial that gives strength and stability to the vehicle under different condition. The chassis is a term used to denote the frame parts or basic structure of the vehicle. A vehicle without body is called chassis. Chassis is the structural backbone of any vehicle. Chassis frame has to withstand the stresses developed, as well as the deformation occurs in it. The commonly used materials for chassis are mild steel. The analysis is done for the chassis using the composite materials such as carbon epoxy, E glass epoxy, S2 glass epoxy, as materials. Composite materials are replacing traditional metals in many engineering applications due to its light weight and high strength, which has laid a way to the use of composite materials in structural engineering applications. Structural analysis deals with stresses, strains, and deformations in engineering structures subjected to mechanical and thermal load. Composites have high strength and ductility, as well as bending and membrane related mechanical properties, improved fracture toughness, longer fatigue life and excellent impact resistance compared to traditional composite materials. The analysis results can be used to select best materials for chassis. Fatigue analysis is needed on the chassis is subjected to dynamic loads and total life of the chassis.
