Abstract:
Global programs are placing demands on vehicle platforms to achieve structural durability robustness across a broader spectrum of vehicle configurations and use conditions. This robustness is optimally achieved by (a) localizing energy absorption to lower cost components, and (b) narrowing the spread in loads generated during durability events, which in turn minimizes the cost and mass impact to the vehicle platform. A generalized philosophy for conducting load optimization and for improving energy management for various types of events is presented here. Various techniques that have been employed at GM are explained by way of illustration.
