 Abstract
This study is the result of performing structural analysis in accordance with the new ambulance design of inside space using the new vehicle`s bodywork. 3D design works were performed based on international standards and designed ambulance. And then it was tested by a shock of 10G to the ambulance car inside with respect to the vehicle body after that we looked into the consequences. At this time, it was carried out in consideration of its own weight and the weight of components according to the EN regulation. From the result of structural analysis, the internal frame and configured handrail in a variety of pipe did not have a relatively large stress load, but internal panel and cabinets has been interpreted to receive a large stress load at least over 50 MPa. When carried out reinforcement design in accordance with this analysis, the modification of thickness and shape could be necessary. On the basis of these findings, it is also expected that there could be a useful information to produce a more secure vehicle for paramedics and patients using a ambulance inside the vehicle.
