2016 Mercedes Benz Seoul Motor Show ‘Silver Flow’ Engineering & Fabrication

Client : Mercedes Benz Korea
Year : 2016
Scope : Design and engineering of large scale installation structure

▲ geometric configuration. Note every arm has single freedom of rotation.

▲ Mount detail before shape optimization

▲ Shape optimization (Fusion 360)

▲ Left : After optimization and FEM / Right : Before optimization

With FEM and topology optimization, we could save 50% of material and weight on mount, and 35% from aluminum blades, which dramatically reduced structural stress.

▲ Each blade reach upto 7m in length, weighing 35kg each after optimization.
