    Abstract

    A reliable flanges for steering racks of a Mars rover prototype needs the structural analysis of detail design. This paper presents the static analysis result from a FEA (finite element analysis) software. We set the preloading force of screwed connection and the load of vehicle on the flange. The result of analysis shows the extent of deformation is within the acceptable range and the permanent deformation and fracture does not happen.
