An investigation into the forming behaviour of metal composite hybrids
In an effort to reduce gas emissions from fuel combustion generated by the transportation sector the use of lightweight materials such as composites are currently being intensively explored. Fuel-economy improvement for passenger vehicles is projected to increase by 6-7 % for every 10 % of weight reduction. Composite materials are stronger than steel and lighter than aluminium. Fibre Metal Laminates (FML) is a class of composite material comprised by alternating aluminium sheets and composites...[Show more]
