Abstract:

Occupying an important place in automotive engineering are the various techniques that comprise experimental stress analysis. There is no single technique that is most desirable for general use, but each has its place in the laboratory or on the test road, and frequently one complements another. Recent improvements in techniques and materials along with the successes of the stress analyst, have given new confidence in the value of experimental stress analysis and changed the thinking of management. Many of the major manufacturers now start stress analysis along with basic design and thereby provide a continuous evaluation which has lowered engineering and testing costs, reduced production delays, and eliminated many field failures for lower warranty cost. This report describes representative test procedures used by the industry, along with some of the accompanying modifications and results. Author
