                          Bachelor Thesis proposal
                             Spring seat optimization

Introduction to the project

We are looking for one student with a mechanical engineering background or
equivalent with emphasis on design engineering and finite element methods.
It is favorable if the student has a basic knowledge in one or several CAE
tools. Basic skills in CAD tools are required.

The purpose of the thesis is to build a design and a finite element model of a
spring seat to McPherson strut bearing unit. This is a unit containing the
bearing between the chassis and the car body.
With the correlated model suggest improvements to the existing product to
increase stiffness and decrease weight.

Time frame
The thesis covers 15 credits/ 10 weeks and begins February 2009

This project is preferably performed at the college of the student.
