Automotive Steel Design Manual
(ASDM) is a living document, with periodic revisions andexpansions as dictated by breadth of coverage, experience in application, and the needs of theautomotive and steel industries. The first edition was issued in October 1986. This edition isthe ninth in a series of updates.The ASDM brings together materials properties, product design information and manufacturinginformation to make the most effective use of steel as an engineering material. It has been prepared and updated for the particular interests and needs of the product designer and designengineer. The major emphasis is on structural design, fatigue, crash energy management andcorrosion protection. The primary applications are the body-in-white, attached frame members,and attached assemblies such as hoods, deck lids, doors and fenders. Information on materialsand manufacturing processes is provided to enable the product design members of theengineering team to function more effectively.The
Computerized Application and Reference System
(AISI/CARS) is an updated software program, with revisions and expansions that reflect the needs of the automotive and steelindustries. The current version is CARS 2002. Based on the ASDM, it brings together thematerials, design and manufacturing information in the ASDM for ready reference or automaticapplication of the design process by using database and equation solving techniques.AISI/CARS automates the design process for the designer and engineer by:
Eliminating the time-consuming search for design equations and criteria,
Performing required calculations while eliminating potential errors, and
Permitting unlimited, effortless parametric studies.Users of the ASDM and AISI/CARS are encouraged to offer their comments and suggestions asan invaluable part of keeping these tools useful and up-to-date for the product designer anddesign engineer.
