Event: KSAE Autumn Conference
To evaluate the optimal joining method in the aspect of stiffness and strength of Al space frame in the electric vehicle, the stress analysis by FEM and strength test was performed. As a result, the strength of adhesive bonded joint was highly affected by the overlap length, bonding thickness and type of adherend. In the joining method of frame, node and bonding method were excellent in the aspect of stiffness and strength.
