Title:
Crashworthiness parametric shape optimization with the macro element method 
Abstract:
When crashworthiness is an important aspect for a structure, e.g. vehicle structures, certain structural components are designed as energy absorbers. Shape optimization can be used for the design of such components, using for example explicit FEM for the evaluation of crash responses. While FEM is a well known and reliable method, it is also known to be computationally expensive due to the non-linearities of crash. This paper presents an alternative and faster approach for the evaluation of cra...    »
