Joint Integrity and Strength CAE Simulation Methodology for PHEV Vehicle Skid Plate Assembly
Battery unit skid plate Joint integrity and Strength are key design attributes to ensure Functionality of vehicle. This paper provides an overview of simulation methodology to predict joint integrity and Strength of Battery unit skid plate. Bolt Joint integrity checked against the maximum vertical each wheel spindle loads, which captures maximum bending and twisting. This is the condition in which bolts can experience high load and bolt slippage should check against this load. Skid plate experiences different loading based on drivability and road profile. To simulate severe off road event condition, Maximum load which skid plate experience, applied, as Point load on skid plate at various critical locations to find the deflection and to make sure skid plate is strong enough to protect underneath battery unit.
