In this study we discuss the effect of the loading rate on the distribution of stresses in heavy truck chassis. Stress values on the critical components have been compared with respect to the loading rate under same load magnitude. The results show that loading rate is an important parameter in engineering; using higher loading rates leads to higher fluctuations in the predicted stresses. Our investigation is purely numerical and is based on the commercial finite element software Abaqus / Explicit.
