Abstract

This work steps from a bachelor thesis, joining the results of a study about the dynamic loads to evaluate the comfort loss in the motorcycle during the usage, with the potentiality of a modern FEM software. The goal is the development of a new methodology for structural optimization of motorcycle’s frame. In many of cases the success of the structural optimization is linked with a two factors combination: the software and the strength of the engineer to condition the mathematical problem, defining parameters domain and technological constraints. A good alternative to the traditional load hypothesis linked to historical data or instrumental measurements is focused in this paper. Consistent with the tendency to hyper-specialization, the machine has to fit the final user, with his anthropometric characteristics and a neutral riding style, in order to save calculation time, physical driving test and finally saving metal-weight and money
