In today’s competitive environment, manufacturers aim to design optimum products to satisfy the customer expectations while minimizing their cost of development and manufacturing. In order to achieve this, they need to estimate the customer usage in different markets and consider the variation in critical characteristics of their product composed of many sub-systems produced by different suppliers. They are also under pressure of cutting down the prototype and testing costs to stay competitive in the market. Instead of using traditional approach where safety factors are determined based on experience, statistical and probabilistic methods are incorporated more into the product development procedures to achieve optimum design. In this seminar, reliability and robustness based optimization tools will be introduced and applications from automotive engineering will be presented. Studies focused on characterizing the variations in material properties, manufacturing effects, customer usage and their effects on component vibration and durability will be shared together with the state-of-the-art numerical methods for reliability and robustness based design optimization.


Dr. Umud Esat Öztürk received his BSc, MSc, and PhD degrees from Boğaziçi University Mechanical Engineering Department. He worked as technical specialist at R&D Centers of Arçelik A.Ş. and Ford Otomotiv Sanayi A.Ş for structural analysis and design and directed many university collaboration projects supported by TÜBİTAK. He offered elective courses on reliability analysis, design optimization and engine design in graduate programs at Boğaziçi University and İstanbul Technical University. His areas of interest are material behavior modelling, computational mechanics, design validation testing, accelerated life testing, multi-axial load cell development, statistical and probabilistic methods for product development and design optimization.
