Structural analysis of an automotive interior system. Practical learning in the context of the new EHEA

Research output: Indexed journal article Articlepeer-review


At the IQS School of Engineering, practices has been implemented that bring students to the industrial environment through real cases. This action is in accordance with the philosophy of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), with a strong orientation towards practical learning rather than classical education tools based on master classes.
In this article, authors want to show their experience from the Area of Strength of Materials and Structures for the Bachelor's Degree in Industrial Technologies Engineering, and specifically to the subject of Mechanics of Materials. To search the preliminary information and to learn about some of the most relevant structural analysis with the Finite Element Method (FEM), such as modal analysis of vibration and elasto-plastic nonlinear analysis, and to use the Center Console assembly from a real car, make this a good active learning experience of mechanical engineering.
