A Tutorial: Developing Cost-Effective Composite Intensive Vehicles (CIV) to Reduce Weight by 60%

A session at Automotive Lightweight Materials 2012

  • Dr. Raymond Boeman

Wednesday 7th March, 2012

3:45pm to 5:45pm (LMT)


Automotive industry and government endorsed research programs are exploring methods to develop composite- intensive-vehicles that can reach a weight reduction of up to 60%. This workshop will give a step-by-step tutorial on the concept development and design of composite intensive vehicles. Critical technologies and measurements will be analysed and shared.

What will be covered:

•Sharing the mass and performance criteria for a composite intensive body-in-white (BIW)
•Conceptualising preliminary designs for the BIW
•Detailed design to meet the requirements of safety, stiffness, durability etc.
•Assessing safety benefits based on the analysis of crash worthiness
