Fatigue modelling and fast testing methodologies to optimize part design and to boost lightweight materials deployment in chassis parts

Project description

New chassis materials could make electric vehicles 30 % lighter

The EU-funded Fatigue4Light project plans to investigate lightweight solutions adapted to the chassis part of electric vehicles that will render them up to 30 % lighter and safer. The project will introduce new materials with high fatigue performance such as advanced high-strength steels, aluminium alloys and hybrid fibre-reinforced composites; moreover, it will develop new models for predicting fatigue performance and design new methodologies for reducing material testing time. Attention will also be given to how cutting and welding processes could positively affect the overall fatigue performance of chassis components. Ultimately, six lab-scale and industrial demonstrators will be developed to validate the proposed solutions.
