The application of knowledge-based simulations to scoop lightweight design potentials in automotive industry provides an efficient way of virtual product development for inexperienced operators. Generating lightweight constructions or reengineering and improving existing automobile parts can be achieved by combining structural optimization, knowledge allocation and 3D scan techniques. As the phases of this process are mostly performed virtually and supported by a knowledge database, even inexperienced developers can efficiently invent lightweight constructions by utilizing modern optimization tools. Furthermore, they can secure the designs with enhanced finite element analyses and identify possible mechanical problems because of manufacturing deviations with help of 3D scanning methods.
You and your colleagues are cordially invited to participate in the conference “Symposium Design for X” to be held at the “Tagungshotel Jesteburg”, Jesteburg near to Hamburg, Germany on 5 – 6 October 2016. The annual event provides a platform to young postgraduates to present and discuss their new approaches in the field of product development. Industry professionals and professors will enrich these discussions with their manifold experience. This year's symposium will be hosted by Prof. Dieter...
