ABSTRACT. The truck chassis is subjected to lower stresses in rest than it is in movement where the stresses and strains are considerably increased. The current work contains the load cases and boundary conditions for stresses and strains analysis of chassis using finite element analysis. King pin inclination, camber, caster, and toe-in angles of a truck’s wheels affect its chassis’ longitudinal and transverse stresses and strains. This work concentrates on studying the chassis’ stresses and strains when the truck is in longitudinal acceleration motion on asphalted straight road and has adjustable wheel angels for the steerable axles’ wheels.

Keywords: 8×4 trucks, king pin inclination, camber, caster, toe-in, truck dynamics, dynamic chassis stress and strain, finite element models and analysis
