Initial brake pedal conventionally manufactured in Aluminum was
too flexible. Driver had poor race car feedback on brake point.
Target was to develop a brake pedal that is stiffer without
Hollow design weight 178G in titanium instead of 190G in aluminum
reducing the displacement on stresses from 1.8mm to 0.6mm
Further weight savings potential with the use of lattice structures.
Concepts are weighing down to
TOPOLOGY OPTIMIZATION FOR ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING OPTIMIZING A STRUCTURE BASED ON
AVAILABLE SPACE, LOAD PATH AND NATURAL FREQUENCIES
