Frames and Chassis
Frames and chassis refer to the base structure and framework of a vehicle. The frame is typically made of steel, aluminum, or a composite material and is the foundation on which the body of the vehicle is built. The chassis is composed of the frame, brakes, wheels, axles, suspension, engine, and drivetrain components. The frame and chassis provide the vehicle with strength and durability while allowing it to remain light enough to be maneuverable. The frame also serves as a buffer between the passengers and the road, absorbing road shock and impact from bumps and potholes. The suspension system, consisting of springs and shock absorbers, helps to keep the vehicle stable and provide a smooth ride. The frame and chassis design must also be taken into account for aerodynamics and fuel efficiency. As vehicle technology advances, frames and chassis designs are becoming increasingly complex to accommodate additional features and provide improved performance for the driver.
