Abstract

The design of an off-road vehicle is very complicated as the car is subjected to very harsh conditions and it can fail easily causing a lot of damage if it isn’t designed well. One of the most important parameters affecting the car’s performance is the suspension and steering systems design as it affects the vehicle’s performance in handling, during breaking and cornering, the tires contact with the ground, the forces acting on the vehicle’s chassis and it also affects the driver’s comfort during the ride. So given all that we need to pay a lot of attention to designing a set up where all the systems harmoniously work together to give the optimum performance that can allow to vehicle to operate with maximum safety, stability and reliability.
