Master Thesis: Creating load for vehicle body and battery durability based on vehicle dynamic
AVL List GmbH, Graz
This thesis focuses on creating the boundary condition at early stage of development for vehicle body (BIW) and large battery systems in passenger cars. At very early stages of development there are very few information available about the suspensions and the body itself. The idea is to create a loading based on different tracks without having many details of vehicle for a good durability investigation of the parts.The developed procedure will be integrated into the AVL standard process.
