Automotive Body Structures Fundamentals
Emphasis is on body concept for design using first order modeling of thin walled structural elements. Review of a practical application of solid/structural mechanics is considered to design automotive bodies for global bending, torsion, vibration, crashworthiness, topology, material selection, manufacturing constraints, and processes enabling part consolidation and design of BIW subsystems.
Who should attend:
Product, Design, Materials, Manufacturing Engineers, and Managers. This course would be particularly beneficial to all entry level automotive engineers and has been designed to provide an overview of fundamentals of automotive body structures and would also serve as a refresher course for experienced engineers and managers.
Undergraduate/Graduate degrees in mathematics, physics, and engineering and/or equivalent experience in the automotive engineering fields.
All attendees will receive lecture materials and homework worksheets. Breakfasts, coffee breaks and lunches will be provided.
Global Automotive Management Council would offer certificate to the attendees who successfully complete all course requirements. All successful candidates will be recognized at a special dinner ceremony.
