Abstract

Various materials can be used nowadays for vehicle construction, ranging from aluminum alloys and composite materials to high strength steels. For successful utilization of Al alloys, it is advantageous to carry out calculations using FEM and computer simulation tests to verify engineering construction design. This can help to map and take advantage of the potential of the material. On the other hand, the proper observance of the manufacturing process, the chemical composition and microstructure of the selected structural material can also provide us with important information. Material purity, homogeneous chemical composition, the correct production process, technological processing etc., are decisive for the further use of the material for the construction elements of a technical device in the form of fully-functioning components with the required lifetime.

Keywords: Defects, poor quality, Al alloys, fracture analysis, downhill scooter
