It is very important to determine the specifications of components of vehicles at the initial design stage. Currently, the researches on torsional stiffness and weight optimization, structural improvement, and vibration and noise have been carried out. However, the structural local optimization of a component is ignored in the study of the bus body structure. To study the structural local analysis and optimization of the bus body skeleton, a numerical model of bus body skeleton was established using the Hyperworks software. Based on this simulated model of bus body skeleton, the thicknesses of the beams in the gussets, and the ends corner radius of the roof crossrails were varied to analyze their influences on the carrying capacity of the bus body skeleton. The results show that it is important to reasonable select the thicknesses of the beams, and the ends corner radius for the structural optimization and lightweight of the bus body skeleton.
