Materials in Car Body Engineering 2017

More options

In all main car body material classes, from modern steels to aluminium and magnesium alloys to upcoming composite plastics and hybrid materials, intensive research aims to improve material properties and series processability, aiming at opening up new applications, new material combinations, new design possibilities, new future car body concepts, reducing costs - and further reverting the weight spiral, without compromising any other important car body properties.

The car body material concepts currently put forward still differ considerably for different vehicle segments and markets, but all segments jointly experience an increase in viable material options. Thus, in every new project, the famous right material in the right place needs to be searched anew.

To present and discuss the current and foreseeable-future car body material options is the aim of the annual Automotive Circle conference "Materials in Car Body Engineering", again gathered its global network of automobile engineers in Bad Nauheim from 16 to 18 May 2017.

For the second time, three conference days have ssen two discrete, yet overlapping conference modules, addressing the state of industrialisation of composite and hybrid materials on the one hand, and car body lightweight design with innovative steel and light metal developments on the other. In the joint session of both modules on the second conference day, complete and current car body material concepts as well as innovative ideas for intensive material mix solutions have been at the focus of attention.

Module 1: Composite and hybrid materials

Module 2: Steel and light metals
