Abstract


Today’s world is competitive. The necessity of market demand for the advanced technology is in lower price. It reflects in making the technology cheaper. Hence,
every organization striving for cost effective product at a
lower price and within minimum period of time to market.
That keeps pressure on engineers to consistently strive to
design the most effective products at, the lower price. The
work is focus on functioning of the tie rod, the methods of
its performance evaluation its optimization. The tie rod end
job is to ensure the wheels are well aligned. It provides the
adjustment of wheel alignment that keeps the inner and
outer edges of the tires from wearing out. Hence, the tie rod
functioning is crucial for steering as well as suspension
performance of vehicle. Hollow Tie rod with 11.0mm ID is
select after analysis, and further material analysis is done
using 11.0 mm as ID. It gives 13.80% less weight than solid
tie rod, without failure. Aluminum is suggested as
applicable material after analysis.
