Different types Of Chassis Frames Used in Automobile vehicles
Body and Chassis:
- Automobile chassis and frame (structure) support various components and body of the vehicle in addition to loads it is supposed to carry.
- There are two principal types of auto body construction. The unibody construction, and the body and chassis frame construction.
- In the unibody or integral construction, individual metal parts are welded together to make up the body assembly and provide overall body rigidity through an integral all steel welded construction.
- The attachment provisions for the power train and suspension systems are provided by the under body area, which also contributes to the strength of the vehicle. The floor plan and related sections become an integral part of the chassis frame.
- Although a separate frame is used on commercial vehicles, the majority of modern cars use integral construction, which produces a stronger and lighter vehicle and is cheaper on mass production.
- Whether it is a car or a truck, the automobile structure has to withstand various static and dynamic loads.
Chassis Operating Conditions:
Classification of Chassis:
- Conventional control chassis: The engine is mounted in front of the driver’s cabin.
- Semi-forward control chassis: The engine is so mounted that half of it is in the drivers cabin, whereas the other half is in front, outside the drivers cabin.
- Full forward control Chassis: The engine is mounted completely inside the driver’s cabin.
TYPES OF CHASSIS FRAMES:

2. Integral Frame:
3. Semi – Integral Frame:
