Abstract

The use of hood latch systems is vital to all automotive companies that produce cars, trucks or other vehicles. The design of such part needs thorough investigation of professional engineers to make sure that it is safe to use as well as safe for holding the hood to the chase. Since this is a product needed in every car, the automotive component specialists, like ACS, have a hard competition for which one is the better product. In this project the given concept design of a hood latch system was used in an optimization process.
