Abstract [en]

As people strive to live more sustainable due to the change in climate, product developers need to adapt and create new and more sustainable solutions. In the car industry, companies work to minimize weight and adjust material selection in the cars to reduce emissions. The goal of this project was to find a new solution, in aspects of cost, weight and size, for fixating the hood on Lynk & Co's Model 01 on behalf of CEVT to create a more sustainable vehicle.By using proven and recognized product development tools throughout the product development process, a new concept for fixing the hood could be evolved. This concept was then analyzed with regard to the developed requirements specification to ensure a good result. In this part, the finite element method and hand calculations were mainly used to analyze stresses in the material.The result of the work was thus a proposal on how hoods for electric cars could be fixed in the future. The concept consists of a hood that is held in place with the help of four hooks and which, when serviced, is held parallel to the engine compartment with the help of two struts. The concept also includes suggestions on locking mechanisms to limit the access for unauthorized users. This to ensure that the engine is only handled by qualified personnel and therefore reduces wear. Throughout the whole project, focus has been on sustainable development. The results has been analyzed and compared to the existing model with this in mind.
