Improving safety through advanced manufacturing
In a drive to improve fuel-efficiency and reduce vehicle weight, green house emissions and cost; advanced high-strength and light-weight materials are attractive candidates for use in automotive components and structures. However, in order to achieve these objectives while maintaining or enhancing passenger safety, the response of these materials and structures to the gross deformation conditions that occur during manufacturing operations and impact events needs to be better understood.
