Reducing the weight of a vehicle is one of the important focus areas for automotive industry to control fuel expenditures and limit emissions. Increasing focus on sustainability, electrification, stringent regulations are some of the key factors driving adoption of vehicle lightweighting. Advanced materials offer great potential to improve vehicle efficiency as it takes less power to accelerate a lighter object than a heavier one. A 10% reduction in vehicle weight can result in a 6-8% fuel economy improvement. In an increasingly growing electric mobility, lightweighting can play a very important role by accommodating the additional weight introduced by batteries and other components while improving overall performance and range of EVs. As global legislation becomes increasingly stringent, light-weighting is a key element that will enable automotive OEMs to meet the emission goals towards net-zero future.
Simulation plays a critical role in helping industry adapt to lightweighting and come up with future ready designs to maximize the performance on both fronts, fuel efficiency and emissions. Just to highlight an example, using simulation, weight of transmission cross beam can be reduced by up to 45%.
