Siemens Digital Industries Software Automotive Lightweighting
Automotive lightweighting is an engineering concept centered on designing vehicles that are less heavy in order to improve fuel efficiency and overall performance.
In addition to redesigning features and shrinking component dimensions, substituting heavy raw materials with lighter ones is the most effective strategy in automotive lightweighting. However, weight is not the only factor that determines which raw materials to use in lightweight vehicle designs – mechanical properties, cost, design, and manufacturing capabilities are all important considerations. Because physical prototyping and testing the application performance and manufacturing feasibility of new materials can be costly, time consuming, and limited in scope - automotive engineers use advanced simulation software to fully explore different lightweighting opportunities within their designs.
Automotive & Transportation
Affordability and high-volume production of composite materials is a key challenge in the industry and requires a new approach to designing, analyzing and manufacturing composite products.
