Analysis of Different Closeout Structures for a FEM 2001-01-0760

The purpose of this analysis is to provide an understanding of the fundamentals of front structure deflection within four basic load cases; lateral, torsion, upward, and downward. Each case was analyzed with eight different structure configurations. This provided understanding in the deflection behavior when certain structural members are removed. This imperative information will provide the essential structural characteristics of a front integration frame (FIF). This frame is the backbone of the front-end module design philosophy.
