The goal of this thesis is to give information to machine designers about how to design and size sheet metal structures and joints. Generally, the designing object is to lighten structures. To design structures that are light and can carry loads more effectively, designers have to be updated of new manufacturing techniques and new designing methods and criterions. With knowledge of this thesis, a designer can recognize objects and methods plus how and where it is possible to apply these new more effectively load carrying structures. The thesis gives answers to questions of corrosion and material planning, goes into joint types and manufacturing techniques of sheet metal structures. One of the main issues is to develop designers world of ideas to design right kind of products with new lasertechniques.
