Design of A New Weight and Cost Efficient Torsion Profile for Twistbeam Suspension 2017-01-1491

For long automakers around the globe are trying to reduce weight and cost of the components in order to make vehicles more cost and fuel efficient. This paper deals with same problem for rear twist beam for an upcoming vehicle, the task was to reduce the weight and cost of the twist beam structure without compromising on attributes as compared to the surrogate part. This problem was solved by inventing a new torsion profile and gusset combination which uses shape instead of thickness to use material more efficiently thereby reducing weight and cost. This invention has been successfully patented as well.
