Predicting Performance of Lightweight Construction Materials

27.01.2012
The first International VDI-Conference “Simulation in Automotive Lightweight Engineering” on May 09 and 10, 2012 in Wiesbaden addresses the subject calculating lightweight construction materials

Lightweight construction materials pose a particular challenge for calculations engineers and developers in the automotive industry. Which data is needed for current and future simulations? Can the performance of hybrid structures be accurately determined? Can close-to realistic construction models be predicted?

Experts provide answers to these and other questions during the 1st International VDI-Conference “Simulation in Automotive Lightweight Engineering” on May 09 and 10, 2012 in Wiesbaden, Germany.

Experts from Lamborghini present the “Automobil Lamborghini Carbon Fiber Strategy“. Composite Consultant Dr. Alastair Johnson, a former staff member at the DLR German Aerospace Center, provides insight into interdisciplinary crash behavior simulations and trials of lightweight construction materials in aviation.

Representatives of BMW, Daimler and Opel discuss how the performance of fiber reinforced synthetics can be incorporated in calculations, and which conclusions can be drawn from building components and their behavior during crash simulations. Experts from the Ford Research Center demonstrate how ultra-strong steel as well as magna for aluminum- and magnesium castings such as materials, construction components and construction material data may be understood in simulations.

BMW and Suisse Technology Partners broach the subject of how fatigue strength can be forecast for notched CFRP and welded Steel- and aluminum components.

In conclusion, the conference will provide a platform for spokespersons of the University of Leicester and the Polytec UK, to discuss this specialized field.

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
