Abstract [en]

This report presents a method of quality assurance and rapid design solutions in vehicle body development. The method is utilized in a Knowledge Based Engineering (KBE) tool that fuse computer aided design (CAD) and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and enables engineers to process models continuously throughout the initial design process up to final drawing judgement. The tool allows engineers inexperienced in FE-methods to assess properties in new designs by automating many of the routine tasks of FEA. The tool also provide means to automate pre-processing, batch running of multiple analyses and post-processing, thus making the Finite Element Analysis process more efficient. In addition, the tool offers a Concurrent Engineering (CE) approach to the design phase of product development by extending department co-operations.
