As the volume of Battery Electric Vehicles increases, so too does the need for multi-substrate, lightweight designs that offer enhanced protection of the battery against intrusion in the event of an accident. This Webinar will discuss the ability of structural bonding to deliver increased resistance to fatigue over riveted or welded assemblies, while offering high adhesion across alternate substrate options. Results of a simulation engineering project by Henkel and RLE International will be discussed, which demonstrate significant mass reduction, while achieving crash performance targets, using structural hybrid solutions.
