Abstract – This report aims to model, simulate, perform the static and dynamic analysis of a go kart chassis consisting of Circular beams. Modeling, simulations are performed using modeling software i.e., SOLID WORKS and analysis on ANSYS. The maximum deflection is determined by performing static analysis. Computed results will be then compared to analytical calculation, to check whether the location of maximum deflection agrees well with theoretical approximation. The chassis is designed such that it requires less material and as well as it is strong enough to withstand the various impacts on it. Strength and light weight were our basic consideration throughout the design of the chassis of the kart. Hence, AISI1018 was selected as an appropriate material for design which is a medium carbon steel with properties such as light weight, high tensile strength, high machinability, better weldability, etc. All the impacts and stresses were calculated manually by considering the severe working conditions and then the design was analyzed in the analysis software. Step by step modifications in design were made as found necessary and as analyzed on the software. After the complete analysis and the approval of design by inspecting it in all the modes of failure the design was finalized and was selected to which will not fail in any extreme criteria of stresses or load induced.
