Automotive Engineering: Lightweight, Functional, and Novel Materials (Series in Materials Science and Engineering)

By Brian Cantor

The present automobile faces a number of demanding situations, together with elevated worldwide festival, extra stringent environmental and safeguard specifications, the necessity for larger functionality autos, and lowering bills. The fabrics utilized in car engineering play key roles in overcoming those matters. car Engineering: light-weight, practical, and Novel fabrics specializes in either present fabrics and destiny advancements in automobile technological know-how and technology.

Divided into 4 sections, the booklet first describes the improvement of destiny autos, aluminum alloys for production lighter physique panels, and diverse polymer composites for more suitable module providers. It then experiences state of the art sensible fabrics and clever applied sciences and initiatives during which software parts they'll such a lot influence destiny automobile designs and production. the subsequent part considers the problems that needs to be conquer for mild alloys to displace ferrous-based fabrics and the expanding pageant from light-weight polymeric-based composites. the ultimate part explores more recent processing and production applied sciences, together with welding and becoming a member of, titanium alloys, and sturdy, high-performance composites.

With contributions from across the world well-known specialists, this quantity offers a entire evaluate of state-of-the-art car fabrics and applied sciences. it's going to assist you comprehend the major fabrics and engineering issues at the moment confronting this undefined.
