The wheel angles are one of many parameters effect on the chassis forces. They generate a lateral force doesn’t distil on the tire center but shift far away by a certain value, while the longitudinal forces move outside by the camber offset. Adding to that, the vehicle under cornering condition however other lateral force grows on the tire patch area at the same point for the wheel angles’ force on the tire patch but in the opposite direction. This research using the Finite Element Structural Analysis (FESA) of a truck frame which plays a key role during stresses and strains analysis stages. The current work concerns the loads with the wheel’s aligning angles (steerable axles’ wheels) and cornering movement on asphalted, and dry road. The results of reading this paper will confer the researcher a summary of some current developments in the field of vehicle design using finite element stress and strain analysis.
