      hicle parts and help to reduce the overall weight of the vehicle. At the Aut
      omotive Center Südwestfalen investigations have been made into the potentia
      l for reducing the thickness of sheet metal and component walls.&nbsp;</stro
      ng></p> <p>Because of the risk of corrosion, the sheet metal used in vehicl
      es is often thicker and mechanically stronger than is absolutely necessary.
      A study carried out on behalf of Dörken MKS by the Automotive Center Südwe
      stfalen (ACS) investigated the extent to which sheet metal can be made thinn
      er if high-performance corrosion protection coatings are applied with the ai
      m of reducing the quantity of material used and the weight of the components
      .&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Simulated tests to reduce sheet metal thickness</str
      ong></p> <p>The first stage of the study involved evaluating a simplified m
      odel of a steering arm, consisting of a steel U-section, to identify how far
       the wall thickness of the component could be reduced without affecting the
      functionality of the real component or failing to meet the manufacturer's re
      quirements. Then the finite element method was used to determine the bucklin
      g load of a U­section made from steel with the conventional thickness of 2.
