Optimization-led Development Process Yields Highly Efficient Design Concepts

Dr. Akbar Farahani, VP of Global Engineering, ETA   Introduction The design of automotive body structures is driven by many competing criteria such as lower cost, weight reduction (CO2 reduction, Electric and Battery Electric Vehicle), enhanced multi-disciplinary performance and manufacturability. In addition, the introduction of new manufacturing processes and materials (e.g., AHSS, aluminum, composite) significantly ...
