Chairman: D.S. Wilkinson

The automobile is undergoing greater changes than at any time in its history. Materials developments are vital to the success of many of these emerging technologies that are expected to revolutionize the automobile, both in terms of structural and power train systems. This symposium will address all aspects of these developments. In particular, papers are invited on the following topics:
  • New materials for lightweight structures (both metals and polymers)
  • Materials and systems for advanced power train systems, including batteries and fuel cells
  • Advanced manufacturing processes for automotive components
  • Influence of manufacturing processes on material properties
  • Models for energy costs and life cycle analysis.
