Material Change Proposal for an Automotive Component due to Design Boundary Conditions 2012-36-0300

The search for innovative solutions has been object of study all over the world. Among its premises are: cost reduction, application of new materials lighter and stronger, ease of production and assembly. The integration of finite element analysis (FEA), experimental tests and Materials Engineering allows the working group to develop an efficient and innovative product.
The current paper explores the development of a clutch pedal joint pin, where the design boundary conditions required innovative solutions, like the adoption of a new material and new geometry. These conditions were evaluated by a finite elements model through a non-linear approach, which had its results correlated with experimental tests.
