The speed of the car depends on the air flow on the outer surface of car. More the front surface area of car exposed to the air fluid more the drag created on the car and hence it lowers the speed of the car which directly affects the car efficiency. The front portion of car has to be designed based fluid dynamic loads as well as structural loads. The current scope of the work is study the structural stability of bonnet for the misuse analysis. These misuse analysis loads (structural) occur while opening or closing of bonnet during the service of car engine. The scopes also focus on the reduction of mass of the bonnet structure and check for the strength to weight ratio factor without compromising the factor of safety. . The weight of car bonnet can affect the efficiency of overall performance of vehicle, so that here adopting the technique like topometry, topology, size and topography to optimize the existing one. The final result shall have reduced weight of bonnet.
