Optimization of Contact Profiles using Super-Ellipse
Author(s): Duchemin, M., Tugui, C., and Collee, V.
Abstract In many rolling or sliding contact mechanisms, like roller bearings, journal bearings, gearings or any contact between two semi-infinite bodies, concentrated stress occurs at the edges of the....
A New Weight Reduction Lightening Holes Development Approach Based on Frame Durability Fatigue Performance
Author(s): Lin, B., bhat, R., Zhang, S., Sykes-Green, T. et al.
Abstract For a light duty truck, the frame is a structural system and it must go through a series of proving ground events to meet fatigue performance requirement. Nowadays, in order to meet stringent....
A Novel Method Studying the Effects of Journal Straightness in Three-Dimensional Space on Lubrication of Bearing
Author(s): Zhou, J., Xu, M., and Wang, B.
Abstract Conventionally, the engines are calibrated under the assumption that engines will be made exactly to the prints, and all the engines from the same batch will be identical. However, engine-to-....
Simplified Approach for Optimizing Lightening Holes in Truck Frames for Durability Performance
Author(s): bhat, R., Sharma, N., Rivard, C., and Thomson, K.
Abstract During development of new vehicles, CAE driven optimizations are helpful in achieving the optimal designs. In the early phase of vehicle development there is an opportunity to explore shape c....
Integrated Shape and Topology Optimization - Applications in Automotive Design and Manufacturing
Author(s): Fiedler, K., Rolfe, B., and De Souza, T.
Abstract This paper presents applications for an integrated shape- and topology (IST) optimization approach of structural systems. IST introduces additional geometric and loading conditions to the des....
Design of Automotive Structures Using Multi-Model Optimization
Author(s): Zagorski, N., Nelson, E., Caliskan, A., and Li, A.
Abstract The use of structural optimization in the design of automotive structures is increasingly common. However, it is often challenging to apply these methods simultaneously for different requirem....

Author(s): Ramaswamy, K., Patham, B., Savic, V., and Tripathy, B.
Abstract Cellular foams have found a predominant application in automotive industry for efficient energy absorption so as to meet stringent and continuously improving vehicle crashworthiness and occup....
Topology Optimization and Fatigue Analysis for Lightweight Design of Vehicle Differential Case
Author(s): Shaikh, W., Wang, L., Yang, S., Xia, H. et al.
Abstract In this advanced technological era, lightweight design for fuel efficiency and environmental friendliness is essential for both conventional and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), without sacri....
Modular Design and Methods to Optimize Seat Complete Assemblies
Author(s): Berry, S., ElMaraghy, H., Line, J., and Kondrad, M.
Abstract Modularity in product architecture and its significance in product development have become an important product design topics in the last few decades. Several Product Modularity definitions a....
Design of Roof Rack Rails with Cost and Weight Optimization
Author(s): Softa, A., Shami, A., and Khurana, R.
Abstract The fuel efficiency of a vehicle depends on multiple factors such as engine efficiency, type of fuel, aerodynamic drag, and tire friction and vehicle weight. Analysis of weight and functional....
