Webinar: e-mobility needs smart steel solutions

Watch this webinar to discover how ArcelorMittal’s new S-in motion® customizable steel solutions for battery pack enable carmakers to extend range, reduce cost, and enhance safety at the most affordable cost.

Live webinar: Thursday, 13 June 2019 | 15:30 CEST | 14.30 BST | 9:30 EDT | 8:30 CDT

For the transition to electric vehicles to be fully successful, carmakers must increase efforts to extend range, reduce cost, and enhance safety. In this webinar, ArcelorMittal specialists demonstrate why e-mobility needs smart steel.

A new S-in motion® study from ArcelorMittal reveals that advanced high strength steels (AHSS) solutions are the best choice to achieve this revolution in mobility at an affordable cost. This presentation gives automotive engineers inspiration on how to build the battery pack (housing the battery cells and equipment).

For example, the S-in motion® examination of the battery pack demonstrated how critical the battery pack is by simulating some of the most severe load cases such as underfloor intrusion, and pole crush and drop tests. The high mechanical properties of ArcelorMittal’s MartINsite® 1500 steel grade exhibited excellent results in these tests when combined with an appropriate design. The three main sub-modules (upper cross member, frame and lower shield) were found to benefit from this steel grade.

ArcelorMittal’s experts at Battery System Car Body Engineering conference


Want to see Matthieu Amblard in real life? The battery pack is the focus of the next Battery System Car Body Engineering conference which will be held in Bad Nauheim (Germany) on 26-27 June 2019. During this conference, Matthieu Amblard will present a paper about the high strength martensitic steel battery pack concept.

ArcelorMittal analyzed the potential of Advanced High Strength Steels for the BEV battery pack structure. A case study is proposed based on ArcelorMittal’s generic S-in motion® vehicle model in which functions and constraints are analyzed. A set of critical mechanical load cases is proposed from various sources with acceptance criteria adapted to Finite Element methods. Best design practices are presented to obtain the best from Advanced High Strength Steels. The global mass and cost of the battery concept is then compared to the benchmark.
This demonstrates that e-mobility needs smart steel solutions.
