Analysis of the Influence of the Seal Structure on Door Closing Force for SANTANA 2004-01-1348

In order to evaluate the influence of the seal structure on door closing force, nonlinear finite element method is introduced to analyze compression deformation of a door seal for SANTANA (name of the car made by Shanghai Volkswagen Co. Ltd) in this paper. The computed results show that the compression loads of the door seal are larger than the standard value of Shanghai Volkswagen Co. Ltd and the seal structure needs to be optimized. The computed results are proved by experiment.
