Abstract

This research works investigate the structural stress analysis of car seat height screw adjuster in the driver’s side to investigate design failure and to determine the optimum life and necessary factor of safety measures of the chair. In this analysis, parameter and dimension were adjusted during Dynamic simulation and static stress analysis in order to confirm the seat reliability, durability and average weight it can withstand during the use phase. Finite element analysis was carried out on the carriage seat part using Autodesk InventorTM. The von mises stress and factor of safety produced during the use phase of the chair were documented. It was discovered that the acceptable High values of Von Mises stresses of 49.5903MPa at relatively low displacement of 0.0491955mm and factor of safety of 4.1742 is at mass of 0.094867 kg of 18 mm diameter and 49 mm long of the screw adjuster for the three region analyze. This research illustrates an advanced modeling and analysis which help to know the actual parameter needed for the construction of seat adjusting screw. This will aid quality design concept for resource efficiency within the automobile industries.
