The introduction of lighter and stronger metals in automotive design is an overall win for both manufacturers and consumers. The properties of these advanced materials, however, make crash performance modeling a challenge. EWI has developed a new solution for predicting crash behavior that can save automakers both time and money.
Addressing the Role of Joints in Vehicle Crash Simulations, written by Senior Technology Leader Jerry Gould, introduces this new technique, discusses its success for spot welding, and describes its potential for continuous welds.
