Abstract
Thermoelastic stress analysis of plastic models was successfully employed in the design and development of steel counter parts of an automobile. SPATE 8000 facilitated non-contact high resolution stress measurements of cast and vacuum formed plastic models. The stress analysis of the model was used for predicting stresses on steel prototypes. Design sensivity analysis was performed on plastic models to evaluate different design iterations. Problem areas were identified before the design was comitted to metal, thereby minimizing impact on cost and scheduling.
