Recent Applications on Reliability-Based Optimization of Automotive Structures 2003-01-0152

This paper is on the application of reliability-based design optimization of automotive structures. Several foundmental approaches aimed at simulations, optimization and robustness analysis are discussed. They include:
  • Sampling techniques and nonlinear response surface methodologies;
  • Optimization and robustness assessment.
  • Basic approaches of reliability-based design optimization such as Hasofer-Lind method, single loop single vector method and mean value first order reliability method;
  • Robust design formulation.
The major focus is on the implementation of reliability-based design optimization methodologies to vehicle crash safety design. Some recent applications are presented to demostrate how these approaches can be used for vehicle structure design.
