The Design and Size Optimization of the New FCEV Subframe Based on Hypermesh Platform
The establishment of FCEV finite element model of the subframe is based on Hypermesh platform, and a new subframe structure is designed in accordance with the stiffness and strength analysis on the original subframe in all conditions. High-strength steel materials are used to optimize the design of this new structure, which result in the optimal size. Through the comparative analysis of the strength, stiffness, mode shape and quality on new subframe and the original one, it is verified that the design of the new subframe is reasonable and feasible.
