Materials, Design and Manufacturing for Lightweight Vehicles, Second Edition, features the requirements for processing each material type, explains the manufacture of different categories of components, and analyzes different component joining techniques. The properties of all materials, metals, polymers and composites currently used are included along with how each one influences structural design. The new edition also contains refinements to manufacturing processes in particular hot stamping of boron steel and aluminum alloy, and new chapters on designing lightweight automotive structures & lightweight materials for powertrains and electric vehicles.

With its distinguished editor and renowned team of contributors, this is a standard reference for practicing engineers involved in the design and material selection for motor vehicle bodies and components as well as material scientists, environmental scientists, policy makers, car companies and automotive component manufacturers.

  • Fully updated including emphasis on optimized production methods for steels, aluminum alloys, polymers and polymer composite
  • Covers aspects related to the production of environmentally acceptable leading-edge automobiles
  • Explores the manufacturing process for light alloys including metal forming processes for automotive applications as well as new developments in steel technology that are making advanced high strength steels more attractive for lightweight vehicles
