Static Structural Simulations of Cycle Frame
Structural design of a cycle frame is more rigid and strong to resist the load in a Bi-Cycle. Determining the capacity of the frame to carry load is a more crucial job. The design and material selection for the frame is an important factor to make the frame light weight and strong. In this analysis a structural frame for a Bi-Cycle is designed and validated numerically. The frame model is designed using CAD package and simulated for structural loading capacities using finite element methods. Structural steel is applied as the frame material, static load is applied on top tube while the head and chain stack is fixed. The maximum stress generated is plotted in red while minimal stress blue colour.
