Functiebeschrijving

  • Investigate effect of ageing, creep and temperature on lifetime of plastic components.
  • CAE modeling specially, mechanical fixation of the plastic components by bolt or clip.
  • Validation of the analysis by test setup. 

Jouw profiel

The main tasks of the internship student will be,

  • Literature study.
  • CAE modeling of fasteners (this will narrowed to a few types) and setup an optimum model procedure.
  • Evaluation of the analyses by setup of test in collaboration with our testing departments or if it is required at the university.

Student background:

  • Knowledge in CAE analysis (ABAQUS or Altair-OptiStruct).
  • Knowledge in plastics
  • Programing in Matlab                     

Afdeling

Use of non-metallic materials (polymers) are growing in heavy duty trucks. Plastics are low cost in mass production and have relatively low weight which lead to a lower fuel consumption.

CAE analyses of components/systems play a crucial role for having a robust design. In full vehicle CAE analysis, fixations as bolts, clips, snap-fits are modeled as rigid or highly simplified. In most cases the failures are initiated at this point. We are striving to improve our way simulations by including effect of the creep, relaxation and other non-linearities caused by fixations, in lifetime predictions of the final product.
