Crash Simulation on Body Structural Components Made out of Extruded Magnesium 2003-01-0259

On the base of the Finite Element Method (FEM) a new constitutive model for extruded magnesium profiles, useful for crash relevant body components will be developed. This constitutive model will be implemented into commercial software as a user material law and can be used in the development of vehicle structures. First step is the material characterization of the magnesium extruded materials. On this base the constitutive model will be developed and validated. In the last step simulations will be performed with the new simulation tool and the results will be compared to test results.
