In this study, the geometric differences which have a significant effect on the simulation results of the sheet metal prototype vehicle door hinge have been revealed. This geometric difference was examined by finite element simulations and experimental tests for the loads in the X, Y and Z directions specified in the UNECE R11 regulation.
