Resumen

The work presented in this document deals with the design issue for the project Ruck´n Roll, a cooperative work between Technical Universität München and Universidad de las Américas Puebla.

Module 1 definition for this teamwork is rear axle. After going through benchmarking, comparison and analysis of the background data of this project, design premises were set up and became an input for the design process.

Design of rear axle structure and steering device under dynamic conditions preceded...
