EXCLUSIVE OEM-LED LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIALS FOCUS

SHARING THE VERY BEST IN MODELING AND SIMULATION METHODOLOGIES FOR LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIALS, COMPOSITES AND JOINTS

For many OEMs, modeling the properties and behaviors of lightweight materials, composites and joints with the accuracy needed for crash simulation is one of the most pressing issues standing in the way of advancement in high volume lightweight vehicle development. In order to make lightweight development viable, OEMs must strive to overcome these challenges in time, cost and methodology. 

The 1st GALM summit on Modeling, Simulation and Crash Testing Of Automotive Lightweight Materials will come to Detroit, Michigan on 26-27 January 2016 and bring with it 20+ case studies from OEMs, software developers and material experts. Covering the most important areas from cost efficiency and accuracy in modelling aluminum and composite properties to predicting lightweight material life-cycles and accurate crash simulation, experts at the top of their fields asses the best practices for accurately and efficiently modeling and simulating lightweight materials.

THE ONLY OEM-LED CONGRESS PRIORITIZING MATERIAL   PROPERTIES AND PERFORMANCE SIMULATION

The Modeling, Simulation and Crash Testing Of Automotive Lightweight Materials Summit is bringing much-needed discussion on lightweight material, joining and composite simulation to Detroit to facilitate the cost and time efficiency needed to push forward lightweight material development.

Presentations and panels will work towards improved methodologies, cost and time efficiency in crash simulation with the ultimate goal of bringing about a leap forward in lightweight material design & material modeling.       

Day 1: ALUMINUM & MULTI-MATERIAL JOINT MODELING & SIMULATION
