In response to an increasingly demand for fuel-economy, more weight reduction techniques have been proposed to create an optimum vehicle chassis. Material selection and design modification are two of the vital techniques being investigated. In addition, ample attention has been dedicated towards improving the overall strength of a vehicle chassis. Specifically, the overall objective of this study is to maximize weight savings in a truck chassis, while improving its strength characteristics.
