Inhaltsangabe: Technical explanation of composite materials in vehicle design and manufacture Â· Covers all phases of composites design, formulation, fabrication, and testing Â· Features hundreds of case studies and hard-to-find formulas and analytical data Â· Detailed information on resins, preforms, lightweighting, biobased materials
This technical book provides a comprehensive explanation of how advanced composite materials, including FRPs, reinforced thermoplastics, carbon-based composites and many others are designed, processed and utilized in exterior, interior, under-the-hood, structural, semi-structural and non-structural components in passenger cars, performance cars, trucks, motorbikes, and mass transit vehicles. The book clarifies how the material properties of composites can be optimized to decrease weight, expand design options, improve crashworthiness, and reduce fuel consumption in response to CAFE and other regulations. The many case studies and equation-based analyses in this book are intended to assist engineers and others in the selection of materials and the fabrication of vehicle parts.

Review: Composites for Automotive, Truck and Mass Transit Dr. Uday Vaidya Uday has written and excellent synopsis on the use of composites in transportation. This would make a good course book for an undergraduate composites program. The work begins with a discussion of the drives for the high growth of composites in the automotive industry. All aspects of the topic are covered including: economic drivers, resin systems, reinforcements, material forms, processing methodology, design constraints and testing methods. There are excellent discussions of performance cars and why composites are used so heavily in these areas. A thorough evaluation is presented on the reasons Long Fiber Thermoplastics are so heavily used in this industry. No aspects of the field are left out including plant design and the use of recycled and renewable materials. The technical reasons and constraints are well documented and presented. This work will be one of the prized references in my library. An excellent snap shot of what is happening in this fast growing and dynamic market. The work is easy to read and follow. I would recommend it for those who are just starting out in the composites field as a good tutorial on the how, what, where, why and when on the topic. It also is an excellent reference source for those who are well conversant in the field. It is a technical book, but would also be beneficial to anyone in the marketing and management fields. --Creig Bowland, 2011 Chair, Automotive Composites Conference and Exhibition (ACCE), Global Long Fiber Thermoplastics Leader, PPG Industries, Inc.
