Analysis and Optimization of a Window Latch Effort Problem 2000-01-0119

A mathematical model was first developed for the opening effort analysis of vehicle side window latch. The model was then linked to an optimization program to perform optimization studies. The optimization parameters are the coordinates of key joints and the shifts of contact surface profile. Both deterministic and random optimization problems were formulated and solved. Results of the optimization studies were compared and conclusions were drawn from the results.
