Advanced Materials in Automotive Engineeringby Jason (edt) Rowe
Synopses & Reviews
Automotive materials need to meet increasingly demanding challenges in such areas as safety, fuel economy and emission control. With contributions from leading experts in the field, this important book reviews key developments in materials such as nanostructured steels for automotive applications, high pressure die-cast (HPDC) aluminum and magnesium alloys for lightweight powertrains and automotive bodies, and polymer and composite molding technologies in automotive engineering. The contributors also discuss improvements in such materials as advanced automotive body structures and closures, technologies for reducing noise, vibration and harshness (NVH), and joining systems for automotive materials.
Book News Annotation:
Materials scientists and engineers in academia and the automotive industry focus on creating vehicles that produce less pollution than current ones, with a combination of multi-material concepts and mass-optimized design approaches. Among their topics are nanostructured steel for automotive body structures, aluminum sheets for automotive applications, magnesium alloys for lightweight power trains and automotive bodies, advanced automotive body structures and closures, and recycling materials in automotive engineering.
