Occupant protection during interior head impact is should be consider while designing the headliner. There is a Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard, FMVSS201 to ensure the occupant's safety during an interior head impact. Energy absorbing components are used to protect the occupant in the event of impact with components of upper passenger compartment. Automobile manufacturers have been developing suitable designs without Energy absorbing components because of cost issues. The objective of this study is to develop the design method without Energy absorbing components on the grip-handle areas. Grip-handles are located on upper roof in the vehicle where is impact zone that must meet the occupant safety requirement during interior head impact such as FMVSS201U. The head acceleration must be reduced to lower the Head Injury Criterion (HIC) to 1,000. To reduce the head acceleration without energy absorbing components, Grip-handles and related components should absorb the impact by themselves. Grip-handles are connected to brackets. The bracket is used to assemble the headliner with grip-handles. Griphandles and the brackets should endure the downward force. On the other hand, when FMH impact Roof trim, the bracket is deflecting upward and it will absorb the impact energy The bracket needs to meet two demands. In order to meet these demands, Experiment of design will be carried out with the help of CAE and DOE. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2013.

In the current design process for the lower arm used in automobile parts, an optimal solution of its various design variables should be found through exploration of the design space approximated using the response surface model formulated with a first- or second-order polynomial equation. In this study, a multi-level computational DOE (design of experiment) was carried out to explore the design space showing nonlinear behavior, in terms of factors such as the total weight and applied stress of the lower arm, where a fractional-factorial orthogonal array based on the artificial neural network model was introduced. In addition, the tolerance robustness of the optimal solution was estimated using a tolerance optimization with six sigma constraints, taking into account the tolerances occurring in the design variables. © 2011 The Korean Society ot Mechanical Engineers.

Purpose Approximation techniques were used instead of expensive computing analysis in a traditional parametric design optimization of a complex system. A Kriging meta-model was utilized, which enabled the fit of approximated design characteristics for a complex system such as turbine blades that incorporate a large number of design variables and non-linear behaviors. This paper aims to discuss these issues. Design/methodology/approach The authors constructed a Kriging meta-model with a multi-level orthogonal array for the design of experiments, which were used to optimize the fatigue life of turbine blades under cyclic rotational loads such as centrifugal force. By combining a seven-level orthogonal array with the Kriging model, the non-linear design space of fatigue life was explored and optimized. Findings A computer-generated multi-level orthogonal array provided a good representation of the non-linear design space information. The results show that not only was the fatigue life of the leading edge of the blade root significantly improved, but also that the computing analysis was effective. Originality/value To maximize the fatigue life of the turbine blade, the three-design variables with seven factor levels were optimized via a Kriging meta-model. As with the optimization technique, a desirability function approach was adopted, which converted multiple responses into a single response problem by maximizing the total desirability. © 2011 Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

The mechanical limited slip differential (LSD) in vehicles is being replaced by the electromagnetic LSD because of its fast response and better active control characteristics. The coil housing made of STS 304 is one of the most important parts in die solenoid assembly of the electromagnetic LSD. High geometrical accuracy is a prerequisite for the manufacture of such coil housings, but precision machining is difficult because of me use of STS 304 thin plate and the variance in machining variables. The aim of this study is to optimize the mean and variance of the shape accuracy in die coil housing by finding a robust solution for the machining process conditions. The mean and standard deviation of the jaw contact pressure, cutting speed, and feed rate are considered to be the major parameters for minimizing the geometrical mean and variance. The response surface model based on the second-order Taylor series is combined together to minimize the mean and variance of die shape accuracy of the coil housing. © 2011 The Korean Society of Mechanical Engineers.

The technique for order preference by similarity to ideal solution (TOPSIS) is regarded as a classical method of multiple attribute decision making (MADM), often used to solve various decision-making or selection problems. It is based on the concept that the chosen alternative should have the shortest distance from the positive ideal solution and the farthest distance from the negative ideal solution. The TOPSIS can be applied to a design process for carrying out multi-objective shape optimization wherein the best and worst alternatives are to be decided. In this paper, multi-objective shape optimization using the TOPSIS and Rational Bezier curve was applied to the funnel of a cathode-ray tube (CRT). In order to minimize the weight and first principal stress, a new multi-objective shape optimization meuiodology is proposed, wherein the relative-closeness coefficients of the TOPSIS are defined as the performance indices of a multi-objective function and evaluated by response surface models. This methodology enables the designer to decide on the best solution from a number of design specification groups by examining the various conflicts between the weight and the first principal stress. © 2011 The Korean Society of Mechanical Engineers.
