The automobile is less than consistent strain to layout cars in a position to assembly more and more hard demanding situations corresponding to stronger gasoline financial system, superior defense and potent emission keep an eye on. starting with a finished advent to complicated fabrics for automobile lightweighting and automobile purposes, complex fabrics in car engineering is going directly to think of nanostructured metal for automobile physique constructions, aluminium sheet and excessive strain die-cast aluminium alloys for automobile functions, magnesium alloys for light-weight powertrains and automobile our bodies, and polymer and composite moulding applied sciences. the ultimate chapters then ponder more than a few layout and production concerns that have to be addressed while operating with complex fabrics, together with the layout of complex car physique constructions and closures, applied sciences for lowering noise, vibration and harshness, becoming a member of platforms, and the recycling of automobile fabrics.

Energiemanagement im Kraftfahrzeug: Optimierung von CO2-Emissionen und Verbrauch konventioneller und elektrifizierter Automobile

Das Buch trägt dazu bei, das Zusammenspiel der Energieströme im Kraftfahrzeug zu verstehen. Es wird aufgezeigt, wie über diese energetischen Wirkketten der Kraftstoffverbrauch und die CO2-Emissionen in den Zulassungstests und bei den Kunden deutlich reduziert werden können. Die Elektrifizierung des Automobils spielt dabei eine ganz wesentliche Rolle und eröffnet Wege für neue Betriebsstrategien, deren Komplexität nur mit Simulationstools beherrscht werden kann.

Von Mises assumes an elliptical shape, predicting higher yield stresses (see Fig. 5). , in finite element simulations) these models have been found to be inaccurate. 5 Yield locus according to Tresca and Von Mises. to better estimate the shape of the curve. The Vegter-criterion, for instance, is based on the measurement of the uniaxial, plane strain, shear and equibiaxial points. Beside the stress values in these points, the strain vectors are taken into account to construct the tangent to the yield locus.

The modulus of ductile irons is between 160–170 GPa, which is considerably higher than that of aluminum. Ductile irons are used in steering knuckles, brake calipers, crank shafts, cam shafts and many other powertrain components. Austempered ductile iron (ADI), produced by a heat treatment process called austempering, has a significantly higher yield strength (400–1200 MPa) and higher fracture toughness than conventional ductile irons. The yield strength-to-density ratio of ADI is considerably higher than that of cast or forged aluminum.

Steel The main driver for the development of steel grades has been the demand for stronger steels. Strength alone does not make for a steel grade that is suitable for automotive applications. The steels need to posses good formability and weldability, and depending on the application of the part, excellent corrosion resistance, crash worthiness, dent resistance and performance in fatigue. The relation between strength and formability for steels is often depicted in the well known banana-curve (see Fig.
