Stuctural Analysis Of Two Wheeler Handlebar

[Full Text]



H.A. Khande, P.A. Narwade



Keywords: thickness, buckling/bending, stress, deformation.



ABSTRACT: In day today life we frequently come across some minor incidents occurring in case of two wheeler. This includes problems like damage to various two wheeler parts because of vehicle slipping, collapsing, and minor dash or due to impact of heavy weight. In such cases the handle of vehicle deforms or undergoes buckling/bending. This dissertation aims at studding the deformation taking place due to buckling by analyzing the stresses and reducing this stresses by making modification in dimensions or by changing material properties of handlebar.
