Materials in Car Body Engineering 2016

What is right?

The answers to what is "right” differ substantially for different OEM, different car segments, different locations, and for very good reasons. Plus, these answers quite rapidly change over time, given new technologies and new market situations. Hence, discussing state-of-the-art car body materials concepts and material applications for various vehicle segments is the aim of the annual Automotive Circle conference "Materials in Car Body Engineering".

Viable solutions for current car bodies as well as innovative approaches for the foreseeable future were in focus from 9 to 11 May 2016 in Bad Nauheim, Germany.

On three conference days and two overlapping conference modules, the conference was focusing on the increasingly important applications of composite and hybrid materials on the one hand, and on modern lightweight design based on new steel and light metal concepts on the other. In the joint session for both modules, current full car body materials concepts as well as innovative ideas and solutions for an intensive lightweight material mix were at the focus of attention.

Module 1: Composite and hybrid materials

Module 2: Steel and light metals
