In the current research project a lightweight part with integrated functions for electric vehicles is developed. With the approach of a multi-material mix consisting out of fibre reinforced plastics (FRP), aluminium foam and solid aluminium a reference battery housing made of steel is replaced. Here the focus is on the integration of mechanical functions, the thermal management as well as crash and intrusion protection.
