Abstract: Today automobile sector is one of the largest growing technological fields and which is continuously striving for weight reduction of vehicles as the today’s major need of fuel economy and emission reduction demands it. To reduce weight engineers have either to search for better and better materials or to do the optimization. Out of various structural optimization techniques like size, shape & topology optimization, application of Topology Optimization (TO) in automotive structure design is overviewed in this paper and using Evolutionary Structural Optimization (ESO) method driver cabin mounting bracket of a heavy commercial vehicle is optimized here. With the objective of mass reduction and compliance minimization topology optimization is performed using Ansys tool. Various topologies were studied and compared for static structural, fatigue safety factor and finding out minimum natural frequency i.e. modal analysis and an optimized topology was obtained with predefined level of compromise in constraint parameter like strength, minimum natural frequency and fatigue safety factor. Ansys results of static structural and modal analysis will be validated experimentally. 8.164 % of mass reduction is obtained with little compromise in constraint parameter. Fatigue results can be experimentally validated using component level testing or onsite testing as future scope. Also this technique can be used for other automotive structural components to reduce the overall weight of the vehicle.
