Boosting the use of lightweight materials in Electric Vehicles' chassis
New tests and computer simulation methodologies for electric vehicle chassis weight reduction
Fatigue modelling and fast testing methodologies to optimise part design and to boost lightweight materials deployment in chassis parts
Fatigue4Light project is focused on the development of new tests and computer simulation methods to better estimate the fatigue life of chassis components and to select the optimal materials for lighter vehicle chassis.
The project will apply new materials tailored to the requirements of vehicle chassis, such as advanced high-strength steels, special automotive stainless steels, high-strength aluminium alloys and hybrid metal-fibre reinforced polymeric materials.
The goal is to reduce vehicle chassis weight compared to the current solutions, taking into account eco-design and circular economy aspects.
