The finite element analysis of CNG cylinder mounting cradle is done for checking the strength of mounting arrangement. The results obtained from the analysis of the existing proposal are used for creating the new CNG cylinder mounting proposal. The new proposal is based on optimization process. The finite element analysis for new proposal is also carried out for checking the strength for the loading conditions. By comparative study of analyses, the best proposal is suggested for the CNG cylinder mounting cradle.
