Abstract: Stress concentration is one of the most common problems related to automotive components and numerical analysis can be of great interest to deal with such problems. The boundary element method (BEM) is a technique which can be used in stress analysis and it is specifically applied to the design of a car component here. This work presents the efficacy of the application of a procedure based on BEM sub-model for stress analysis in a proposed design change of a front bumper fascia. The results confirm the consistency of the proposed procedure compared to the finite element method (FEM), a consolidated method for stress analysis in the automotive industry.
