ESL Development Based on Simulation - Application example
The body stiffness has a major impact on the Squeak & Rattle performance of a car. Since the body structure of electrical/autonomous cars will differ clearly from traditional bodies, an enhanced requirement is needed to limit the distortion in the closure openings.
This webinar presents a new approach of defining a requirement based on closure deformations using an equivalent static load (ESL), which considers both the reduction from a complete vehicle to a BIG and from a dynamic load to a static load. In addition, an example is shown how ESL can be used as input for body optimization.
