Unwanted vibration associated with the wheel in passenger automobiles has become an important economic and technological problem in the industry. Improved understanding of disc vibration through research papers offers one opportunity for targeted improvements in wheel structural parameter [1]. Wheel disc vibrations are known to involve structural coupling between various components. Depending on the frequency range of interest, the hydraulic system, body panels, steering column, and other

This paper focused on investigation of effect of structural parameter like number of holes for bolting on natural frequency of wheel disc with the help of FEA (ANSYS).
