Abstract
This paper proposes and analyses a new structure design of Rear Under Run Protection Device (RUPD) mounted on the rear of a heavy vehicle to protect under running of smaller vehicles like car. The RUPD is required to comply with the IS 14812 - 2005 regulation for its design and functional behavior under the practical conditions that a vehicle undergo during crash. The standard provides initial inputs and conditions as target and allows designers to generate effective design while maintaining the functionality as well as safety inspection norms. The paper analyses the new design of RUPD on heavy vehicles using finite element analysis tool viz. ANSYS and compares for the agreement with Indian safety regulations. The study comprises elastic simulation done on ANSYS and establishes relative merits from existing structure used.

Key-Words / Index Term
