View Resource Aluminium in Cars – Unlocking the Light-Weighting Potential

In this brochure, the European Aluminium Association (EAA) evaluates the need for vehicle lightweighting to reduce CO2 emissions. Since the 70?s aluminum has been used for some car components (radiators, cylinder heads, and bumper beams), but now has grown to the average amount of 140 kg per car produced in Europe. Aluminum castings, extrusions, forgings and sheets can now be found nearly e...

View Resource Electric Vehicle Component Sizing vs. Vehicle Structural Weight Report

This research report was performed by Ricardo Inc. and funded by The Aluminum Association to evaluate the benefits of structural and powertrain weight reduction on vehicles with hybrid and electric powertrains. In the study, simulation tests were performed by changing structural weight and battery capacity to achieve a range of 40 and 80 miles. It was concluded by using lightweight structural...

View Resource Impact of Vehicle Weight Reduction on Fuel Economy for Various Vehicle Architectures

This research report was performed by Ricardo Inc. and funded by The Aluminum Association to evaluate miles per gallon (MPG) gains by using lightweight aluminum in gas and diesel vehicles. In the study, physics models were developed using MSC.Easy 5 simulation software with production cars and trucks from 2008 as base models. These simulation models were compared to base models by reducing engine...

View Resource Off-Road Engineering

This video, from WGBH, takes a look at the Baha SAE off-road competition, organized by SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) International. The video explains how students take an off-road vehicle all the way from the design phase to completion and the competition. Here, visitors will see the different tools and techniques that students use to design and build their vehicles. This video is...
