Abstract

Automotive industry is one of the biggest sectors which contribute to our economy. The consumption of fuel is very high in this industry specifically in petrol and diesel. Hence, the discharge of greenhouse gasses also high and this can give the bad effect to our environment. Thus to reduce this problems, the weight of a vehicle must be reduced with using the light weight of material. The purpose of this study is to make the improvement in automotive industry which currently still using the same materials. This research investigate the improvement in the design and advance material of a bumper beam with increase the performance of the bumper beam, improve absorbing capacity during impact load and increase the protection of the front car component. Advanced material use in this research is lamination of Carbon Fibre and Aluminium (CARAL) which will undergo Finite Element Analysis (FEA) by SolidWorks® software and will be compare with current materials of the bumper beam such as Steel, Aluminium and Magnesium. This advance material, CARAL also will be compare with previous study which used same materials and same parameters but for 235200N. Clearly this study have two parameters which is use different force regarding of four forces apply, 235200N, 335200N, 435200N and 535200N on different materials. At the end of the research, the percentage difference of the improvement of bumper beam between stress analysis and displacement analysis of CARAL and current materials and also previous study is identified. CARAL bumper already showed the best material in improvement of bumper beam in automotive industry beside Steel, Aluminium and Magnesium.
