The main purpose of an engine mounting bracket is to support the power –train system in an Automobile in all conditions of road surfaces including even, uneven road surfaces. It is very difficult to change the supporting locations and the types of support after the engine is built, the mounting brackets must be verified in the design stage. This paper contains the study of Design and Optimization of an engine mounting bracket and comparison between existing and optimized engine mounting bracket. CAD model has been generated through reverse engineering. The bracket of Mahindra Scorpio Engine is to be taken for study. After analyzing the engine mounting bracket of Mahindra Scorpio, Optimization is done.
