Design and Analysis of Sheet Metal Control Arm
Bhushan Kumar N | Dayakar 
Abstract: Suspension system of an automobile plays an important role in ensuring the stability of the automobile. Although it has been achieved to a considerable extent, another major aspect of suspension system is passenger car is luxury. A lot of research is going on in this direction, which led to the development of independent suspension system. Control arm plays major role in independent suspension system. It is generally made of forged steel which has considerable disadvantages such as weight, cost etc. The project involves the development of sheet metal control arm, which has many advantages over forged metal. The component has been modeled using the curves extracted from workspace available in CATIA V5. This model is translated into IGES file, which is used for analysis.
