Evaluation of various multi-cell design concepts for crashworthiness design of thin-walled aluminum tubes
(Elsevier Ltd., 2019)
In this paper, we evaluate various multi-cell design concepts to optimize the crash performances of thin-walled aluminum tubes. The crash performances of the tubes are evaluated by means of two metrics: the crush force ...
Stress analysis and strength prediction of composite laminates with two interacting holes
(Elsevier Ltd, 2019)
In this study, stress analysis and strength prediction were performed for carbon/epoxy laminates with holes in specific orientations using experimental and numerical techniques. The interaction between the holes was studied ...
Design optimization of an automobile torque arm using global and successive surrogate modeling approaches
(SAGE Publications Ltd., 2019-05)
The design of lightweight automotive structures has become a prevalent practice in the automotive industry. This study focuses on design optimization of an automobile torque arm subjected to cyclic loading. Starting from ...
Design and Analysis of a Novel Power-Split Infinitely Variable Power Transmission System
(American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), 2019)
In the last few decades, power-split infinitely variable transmission (IVT) systems have attracted considerable attention as they ensure high driving comfort with high total efficiencies, especially in off-highway vehicles ...
Investigation of combined effects of cross section, taper angle and cell structure on crashworthiness of multi-cell thin-walled tubes
(Taylor and Francis Ltd., 2019-04)
Crash box design has a substantial importance to reduce the fatalities in a frontal crash. In this study, four different types of multi-cell tubes, namely straight-circular, straight-square, tapered-circular and tapered-square ...
