Materials for Automobile Bodies

 
9780080969794: Materials for Automobile Bodies

The selection of automobile body materials is fundamental to the choice of fabrication method, and the characteristics and performance of the final vehicle or component. The factors behind these choices comprise some of the key technological and design issues facing automotive engineers today. "Materials for Automobile Bodies" brings together a wealth of information on automotive materials and material technologies to provide designers and vehicle body engineers with both a solid grounding and a quick reference to inform their material choices. This book's coverage includes materials processing, formability, welding and joining, anti-corrosion technologies, plus a comprehensive consideration of the implications of materials selection on these processes. Dealing with the whole assembly process from raw material to production, right through to recycling at the end of a vehicle's life, this book is the essential resource for prejudicing engineers, designers, analysts and students involved in the design and specification of motor vehicle bodies and components. This book includes: up-to-date detailed information on contemporary autobody materials, incorporating the explanation often lacking in other data-focused resources; and informative and insightful case studies on the materials and processing choices of major OEMs, also including Honda, BMW and Audi. This book is now with more on geographical supply and usage trends, environmental concerns and end of life disassembly considerations, and how these affect selection choices.

Review:

"Overall.an excellent book. I would have no hesitation recommending it to those studying automotive engineering or automotive materials, as well as engineers in the early stages of their careers in body engineering, materials and manufacturing roles."--Materials World February 2013, page 52

About the Author:

Following 10 years with Richard Thomas and Baldwins Ltd. (now Corus) engaged mainly on research into sheet steel products destined for the automotive industry, a further 35 years was spent on materials technology focused on the car body. This included spells at The Pressed Steel Company, Austin-Morris, BL Technology, Rover and finally BMW UK. Experience included all aspects of material selection raging from sheet steel to aluminium and polymers together with a detailed knowlege of most processing aspects such as pressing, painting and welding. Corrosion prevention was a major feature of recent years and collaborative work with Oxford University helped optimise the use of zinc coated steels on current bodywork.
