Global Automotive Lightweight Materials Detroit 2019

A message from our conference Chair, Gregg Peterson, Senior Technical Specialist, Prefix Corp.

North America’s Flagship OEM Driven Summit and Technology Innovations Showcase On Automotive Lightweight Materials, Structures And Advanced Manufacturing “Where The Industry Meets”

BRAND NEW AGENDA REFLECTING MAJOR AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY INVESTMENT INTO A NEW GENERATION OF EVS AND AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES BY ESTABLISHED AND START-UP OEMS 

The rapid transition to a new generation of EV, autonomous and ICEV platforms, architectures and lightweight structures is driving new opportunities for advanced technology adoption and engineering innovation – but also creating potentially disruptive challenges for vehicle designers, engineers and their suppliers. 

With a brand new agenda, the Summit will provide important insights and understanding through an unrivaled mix of in-depth technical sessions, case study-led presentations and interactive panel discussions on the hottest issues, enabling greater interaction between speakers and delegates than ever before. 

GALM 2020 HIGHLIGHTS ON ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY ADOPTION, MANUFACTURABILITY AND ENGINEERING INNOVATION

  • Find out how to get the greatest value from in innovations in lightweight materials and combine them effectively for enhanced manufacturability – including Gen 3 and other high strength steels, aluminum 6000 and 7000 series applications, carbon fiber and lower plastic composites;
  • Explore and understand how to realize the potential of digitalization and manufacturing 4.0 for integrated design and manufacturing, improved throughput and optimized production system; 
  • Compare and contrast new approaches to developing EV body structure / body in white and battery integration for durability, crashworthiness and intrusion protection;
  • Adopt the latest advances in forming, joining, welding, adhesive bonding, castings, extrusions and testing processes to reduce vehicle mass and minimize costs.

Unrivalled networking and interactive discussion

Meet technical leaders and chief engineers with leading OEMs and EV, autonomous vehicle start-ups – responsible for advanced design, body engineering, simulation and predictive modelling, lightweight high strength metals and composites, manufacturing processes and automation.

This
senior project is an educational case study on the material science of bicycle
wheels, frame, components and helmets.
The idea of this bicycle material
selection case study is to increase the knowledge of the reader of the case
study, as well as the author. We will involve physical aspects of materials
(structure, properties, etc.), by educational literature survey, discussions,
application analysis, and material selection. This core study will be done in a
general way by completing three informative tables. One table will present
material properties requirements for the selected materials commonly used for bicycle wheels, frame, components and helmet.
Table two will display these common possible materials to be used, in reference
to their application (i.e. alloy—frame, foam—helmet, etc). The third table will
select the best material for said bicycle application. The material selection
will be determined and focused on a cost effective standard touring road
bicycle (mid-level) built for the intermediate to advanced road cyclist. Our
overall key features will be weight and cost for this mid-level bicycle
application. The factor of cost in our discussion will only briefly be examined
due to additional manufacturing, design, and material processing costs. The
cyclist profile will be exercise minded road bicycle commuters. The correlative
material/application processes and materials selection will then be discussed
and displayed with conclusions and future prospects. All information presented
will be understandable for non- technical audiences.

 

Topic

Educational case study on
the material science used to in a present day bicycle wheels, frame, components
and helmet.

 

Goal

My goal for this term project is
improve my ability to investigate a materials science case study and
engineering problem by using my background in physical materials principles.

 

Objective

The objective of this bicycle
case study is to apply as well as increase my knowledge in applications of
material science, and to present that information to the reader of the case
study.

 

Approach

This Bicycle
case study will involve physical aspects of materials (structure, properties,
etc.), by educational literature survey, discussions, analysis, and preparation
of a report.

 

Methodology

The majority of the research
will be done by preexisting educational literature on material properties and
structures. This core study will be done in a general way by completing three
informative tables. One table will present material properties requirements for
the selected materials commonly used for bicycle
wheels, frame, components and helmet
. Table two will display these
common possible materials to be used, in reference to their application (i.e.
alloy—frame, foam—helmet, etc). The third table will show the best chose
material selection for said bicycle component application. This materials
selection will then be discussed and displayed and the correlative
material/application processes will
