Paper Title:
Dynamic Design Method for Magnesium Alloys Wheel of New Energy Vehicles

This paper tends to find ways to replace aluminum alloy with a new kind of magnesium alloy for vehicle hubs, and also implements a dynamic design method for the hubs' weight-optimization and relevant analysis,so as to evaluate the strength reliability and modal characteristics. In comparison with most widely used aluminum alloys, magnesium alloy is one of the lightest commercialized metallic materials for structural applications. Magnesium alloys possess the attractive properties desired by automobile industry, such as low density, low cost, higher strength and out-standing damping capability. When used as wheel material, Mg alloys are able to reduce mass of the wheels, absorb vibration, damp noise emission, reduce fuel consumption and enhance acceleration and braking performance.
