Abstract

In the transportation sector –as in most other branches– demanded time-to-market becomes shorter whereas at the same time demanded diversity becomes wider and lightweight requirements become tougher. For this reason the project "Development of a highly integrated modular profile family for the automotive and transportation sector from high and ultrahigh-strength steels with stress-matched sheet thickness gradients” (HIPAT) was established. The project aims to accelerate the development and market introduction of new lightweight rolled steel profiles. As means to achieve this aim a special design catalogue with HIPAT components, design tools and design rules pertaining to lightweight constructions and the integration of functions was developed and combined to create a continuous design methodology. This design methodology is distinguished mainly by its applicability in early design phases.
