Recent Developments of Automotive Composites the Subject of New SAE International Book


SAE International has published the new book, “Design of Automotive Composites,” which reports the successful designs of automotive composites that recently have occurred.

The chapters consist of 11 technical papers selected from the Automotive Composites and other relevant sessions that the editors have been organizing for the SAE International World Congress over the past five years.

Developed by Srikanth Pilla and Charles Lu, the book is divided into four sections:

·         Body Structures

·         Powertrain Components

·         Suspension Components

·         Electrical and Alternative Vehicle Components

The composite design examples presented in Design of Automotive Composites come from the major OEMs and top-tier suppliers and are most relevant to the automotive materials challenges currently faced by the industry. Many of the innovative ideas have already been implemented on existing or new model vehicles, although a great deal of innovation is still in the works.
