    Abstract

    This paper develops a new scheme for the
    lightweight design of heavy dump truck frames based on the
    characteristics of dynamic responses. The dynamic response
    is predicted using a finite element (FE) model which is
    verified by an experimental mode analysis. The FE model is
    then used to investigate the characteristics of dynamic
    responses and frame weight changes with respect to the
    mass changes of each frame component for selecting
    significant components. An optimization is finally developed
    for the lightweight design under constrains that maintain
    required dynamic responses and static strength. The
    optimization results show that the weight of frame can be
    reduced by 8%, showing that the scheme is an effective way
    to achieve automotive lightweight design.
