Morphing Technique Application for the Automotive Component Analysis 2007-01-3936

Shape optimization is one of methods to reduce the vehicle weight, however the method is not used widely because the definition method of shape basis vector is too difficult. In this study, shape optimization and newly shaped FE model generation with morphing technique is investigated. First the advantage and disadvantage have been compared between commercial software, Hyper Morph and DEP Morpher. Second, morphing technique is applied to several automotive components. The research results show that newly shaped FE model generation with morphing technique is successful and very efficient to reduce the time of product development.
