Non Linear Analysis Of Roll Over Protection Structure
Roll over Protection Structure (ROPS) is a structure of vehicle and are expected to prevent overturn deaths.
Rollover of a vehicle is most common due to imbalance, high speed, high center of gravity and also working on slopes and
rough terrain. After Rollover vehicle may block the doors complicating the escape of passenger and may lie on its side or roof.
In such conditions ROPS are expected to protect the occupant or driver. This paper depicts the importance of computer aided
modeling and finite element analysis. Meshing and Non linear analysis was performed by using different software on newly
designed SD190 Full ROPS as per ISO 3471.
