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 ...
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 ...
Foam filling options for crashworthiness optimization of thin-walled multi-tubular circular columns
(Elsevier Ltd., 2018-07-17)
There is an increasing trend in using aluminum foam-filled columns in crash management systems due to theirlight weight in automotive industry. The main goal of this study is to optimize the crashworthiness of aluminumfoam-filled ...
Optimum crashworthiness design of tapered thin-walled tubes with lateral circular cutouts
(Elsevier Sci Ltd, 2016-10)
In this paper, the effects of introducing lateral circular cutouts on crash performances of tapered thin-walled tubes are explored within a simulation-driven surrogate-based multi-objective optimization framework. The crash ...
Drop test simulation and surrogate-based optimization of a dishwasher mechanical structure and its packaging module
A drop test simulation of the mechanical structure of a redesigned dishwasher is performed by using a detailed finite element (FE) model. The nonlinear explicit FE code LS-DYNAA (R) is used for the drop impact simulations. ...
