Abstract: The report being elaborated below involves the design, analysis and fabrication of a multi-tubular space frame. The main motive of the roll cage is to ensure the structural safety and comfort of the driver under all loading conditions as well as incorporating all the other subsystems together. The roll-cage has been drafted on various designing software’s such as Solidworks and CATIA. The analysis and optimization has been done on advanced 3D CAD modelling and FEA software’s such as ANSYS, Solidworks and Hyperworks. The material used for fabrication was finalized after extensive market surveys on the basis of cost and strength to weight ratio. Testing and development to meet the design requirements and validation of the specification was undertaken.
