Abstract
This report is part of the Master thesis performed by Markus Jonasson and Alexander Mann at the Department of Design Sciences at Lund University. Markus and Alexan-der have studied to become Masters of Science in Mechanical Engineering with In-dustrial Design. Per Liljeqvist, senior lecturer in Industrial Design at the Department of Design Sciences is instructor. Robert Bjärnemo, professor in Machine Design at the Department of Design Sciences is examiner.
The TTW which the body is being designed for is developed by Per Stjärnehag.
The purpose of the thesis is described by the brief:

This report is part of the Master thesis performed by Markus Jonasson and Alexander Mann at the Department of Design Sciences at Lund University.

The TTW which the body is being designed for is developed by Per Stjärnehag.
The purpose of the thesis is described by the brief:
The Master thesis is effected with the cooperation of the company Handikappteknik and the Department of Design Sciences at LTH. The purpose of the Master thesis is to design the body for a vehicle of the type Tilting Three Wheeler, TTW. The vehicle is a part of the DAMIA2 project in which both LTH and Handikappteknik are involved. The design work performed should preferably result in a finished product, ready for assembly on the vehicle chassis. The assignment involves designing the body itself but might also consider smaller visible detailing such as lighting, instruments, seating and potential modifications in the chassis due to the body design. The body is to be manufactured in glass fiber, preferably at Handikappteknik’s workshop.
The method used is based on H-POINT, literature written for students at the Trans-portation Design Department, Art Center College in Pasadena, California. The book gives a systematic approach to designing vehicles with considerations of the compo-nent architecture.
A specification of requirements is established to secure that the design work follows legislations and other demands. Function analysis is used to establish guidelines for the design and specify user needs. Image boards and target groups are created and a market analysis is carried out, including benchmarking of competitors.
A CAD model is created of the final concept design. (Less)
