The Use of Methodical Design Information Systems in the Automotive Industry 910898

A systematic approach to the design of seals and gaskets requires the storage of information on interactions between geometry and function in order to build up a Methodical Design Information System. The intentions of this systematic documentation are:
  • to collect and document all known variations of seals and gaskets
  • to simplify and rationalize the design process
  • to make the design process independent from the experience of the engineer
  • to find correlations between geometry and function
  • to help to optimize the function of the gasket
  • to help to imply the design process in a CAD-system
