Aluminium7075 is an established material that is used in a variety of applications. Aluminium 7075 has replaced metals like Aluminium and brass for cost and weight. The design of a motorcycle wheel contains several complexes and attempt has been made to meet the requirements of original equipment manufacturers It is also that material that can meet the needs of more demanding applications where very high or low temperatures or chemical resistance are key operational parameters Aluminium 7075 is an ideal replacement for Magnesium alloy and Titanium alloy as well as other types of metal tubing, and even glass for weight reduction, comparable strength/mass, chemical resistance, hardness, and low extractable. Aluminium 7075 is particularly useful in the automobile industry for its weight. In this project work the entire wheel design of two wheeler was chosen and analysed by applying different load and redesign the wheel again to minimize the deformation and material will be changed from titanium to aluminium7075.The composition of aluminium7075 are:- 1)6%Zinc 2)2.4%Magnesium 3)1.5% Copper 4)0.4% Silicon, iron, manganese, titanium, chromium Wheel design of two wheeler is made in SolidWorks 2015 and analysis is done in Ansys workbench 15.0 software to determine the various stresses, strain, and Impact and fatigue life of the wheel.
