Development of General SEA Templates for Four-Door Passenger Cars 2003-01-1558
In this paper, the development of a generic SEA template of a four-door passenger car is presented. Validation of the templates is given by comparing the results with those obtained from the detailed SEA model and tests. The derivation of SEA model based on validated templates can reduce modeling effort substantially. Additionally, it also improves the quality of the model since this model is extracted from validated template model. Morphing the developed templates to a new production vehicle was also demonstrated to illustrate a morphing procedure, which can save large SEA model developing time.
