Abstract: Mechanical linkages steering systems are commonly used due to their simplicity in construction and compactness. The main purpose of this paper is to design and manufacture manual mechanical linkages steering system according to the requirement of the vehicle for better maneuverability. Quantities like turning circle radius, steering ratio, steering effort, etc. are inter-dependent on each other and therefore there are different design consideration according to the type of vehicle. The comparison of result is shown using tables which will help to design an effective steering for the vehicle. A virtual mechanical linkages assembly can be created using software like SOLIDWORKS.

Keywords: Steering ratio, steering wheel torque, inner wheel and outer wheel angle, Mechanical linkages steering.
