Design Of Carbon Fiber / Composites For Automotive

Recent trends on using composite materials and panels for body designs of light weight vehicles. The most of the Europe and less of the north america are shifting towards using composites as the only material for BIW and other parts in automobiles due it ultimately light weight and very very high UTS values which is gained by the quasi-isotropic nature of the raw material i.e. carbon firber fabrics. The design of cabron fiber panels is very different from that of steel body panels as the DFA,DFM,DFS concerns are totally different which requires a great attention. India is slowly gathering the technology as there are number of 3rd party vendors who import the fabrics and support the bit and piece wise to the OEM's here in india.
