  • Case Studies: Automotive Door Panel Case

    Description

    The aim of this resource is to support advanced teaching of materials selection where real-life applications are desirable. In this case study, we have investigated the lightweighting of an automotive exterior door panel. Inspired by the plastic panels in the Smart ForTwo car, we studied the suitability of this class of material as a replacement for steel. The selection procedure is described in detail and the result is then compared with the actual material used in the car.
