Topological Study for Weight Reduction of Components in Automotive Transmissions 2010-36-0410
The actual needs of weight and CO2 emissions reduction on vehicles stimulate the development of compact and lightweight solutions for new applications. In order to obtain lighter solutions, it is necessary to break some paradigms. The proposal of this work is to demonstrate a method of an effective weight reduction on components of automotive transmissions. The study will be based on the optimization. The goal of this study is to demonstrate clearly and objectively the weight reduction of transmission components without jeopardizing the capacity of the load and the life by fatigue of the component, in other words, without concerns on the functionality and the efficiency of the transmission system as a whole.
