Tie rods or Track rods are an integral part of vehicle's steering system. Just as its name suggests a Tie rod ties vehicle's steering rack to the steering arm. It is used to give direction to tires according to steering wheel movement. A tie rod assembly is attached to each end of the relay rod. The tie rod assembly consists of inner and outer tie rods that are usually connected through an adjusting sleeve. Tie rod may get fail due to varying forces and bumping of vehicle during steering. The forces from the steering are also considered during the static condition of car. The finite element models of the modified tie rod also analyzed to find stiffness and stress distributions in each component. Mr. Omkar G. Purkar | Prof. P. R.
