The main objective of this project is to investigate the existing and new design of fuel tank for trucks with respect to design reliability and real time performance. Another objective is to improve design by adopting shape and size optimismation concept through FEA. The real time performance of tank was inspected by collecting the data from workshop and also observing the actual components condition. Further the design improvement was done by carried out the finite element analysis (FEA) of fuel tank structure and its mounting bracket at the various load conditions like 2G & 3G. The 3D modelling was done by using Pro-E wildfire software. The FEA analysis of tank structure and mounting bracket was carried-out by using Pro-Mechanica software. The design improvement was done by strengthing the structure and introducing better mounting concept to aviod vibration and catastropic failure.
