Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.
