Design Through Analysis of an Experimental Automobile Structure 770597

It is evident that the use of impact simulation, static, and dynamic analyses in the pre-prototype phase of the design process can significantly improve the structural efficiency of the automobile. As a result of this design project, the accuracy of the structural modeling and analysis was verified by experimental data obtained from a fabricated test vehicle, and the potential value of design through analysis was demonstrated by a significant reduction in structural weight of the project vehicle.
