Chassis is a major component in a vehicle system. This work involved static analysis to determine key characteristics of a chassis. The static characteristics include identifying location of high stress area. Mathematical calculations were carried out to validate the static analysis . This paper presents the static load analysis of the chassis of TATA ace ex using ANSYS workbench and stress optimization using reinforcement technique of optimization . This has been carried out with limited modifications by adding stiffeners. The necessary design changes required to enhance the load carrying capacity of the veh icle has been recommended successfully.
