Title:
Optimization of Automotive Composite Structures 
Abstract:
Composites in automotive structures show great promise; composites have been shown to be lightweight, more robust and have superior crash performance. The high specific strength and stiffness of advanced composites may have a significant influence on the overall weight reduction in automotive structures. Until now limited research has been done on optimal design of composite structures for crash. The large differences in material properties and failure behavior between metals and composites ma...    »
