The main goals of this project were the development of the body for an electric vehicle and the study of the front fender. Various aspects related with the project of a fiberglass component were addressed in this work like the choice of materials, and manufacturing processes of composite materials. In order to test the front fender, this was modeled seperatly and imported to ANSYS classic. A model with solid elements and a tailored mesh was developed, having one element per ply in the through the thickness direction and accounting for aspects like contact and laminate layup. Failure analysis was made by a progressive damage model with a set of Hashin type failure criteria.
