Stiffness, FEA System


In the competitive business the automobile companies have to update for the aesthetic look of vehicle with its efficiency, service and cost of vehicle. When car come across any accident from the front portion most of the time Hood system gets damaged. So there is a need for analysis of Hood system. For every new car project, updated vehicle’s style is coming from styling department. The engineering feasibility data is prepared as per updated styling with the provided surrounding space. In this paper, new hood design is prepared for better stiffness than the existing hood design. The torsion stiffness and cross member bending durability load cases are considered for stiffness calculation in this work. The primary data of hood assembly has created as per design consideration and development has done as per Computer Aided Engineering results. This paper deals with development for better stiffness of new hood assembly design compare to the existing design.
