In this paper, design and analysis of stringer for the chassis frame in load carrying vehicles is reported. In order to resist the shock, twist, and other stresses, the chassis must be a very hard one. In addition to the strength, the chassis should withstand adequate bending and torsional stiffness. Here, the work performed towards the analysis of stringer in chassis with the constraints of stiffness and strength by using finite element analysis software. Results show that hat stringer is stronger than C-stringer when the stringer is in bending conditions.
