Particularly in the automotive sector the importance of lightweight constructions is increasing. The reasons for this development vary from more strict limitations of the exhaust of carbon dioxides to an increased ecological awareness. Nevertheless basic requirements like crashworthiness must also be considered as vehicle safety is one of the most important arguments for customers purchase decision. To solve this contradiction of a light but also safe construction an approach to develop crashworthy lightweight construction is presented and the impact of join connections on the crashperformance is observed.
