Carbon Fibre Reinforced Composite Car (1862 words)
The application of carbon or epoxy composites to a lightweight primary structure is not new, but the process has to date been employed exclusively within the prestige sports and racing car industry.
However, this approach presented some difficult manufacturing technology challenges since frameworks have complex geometry and joining of composite primary structures is a very labour-intensive process.
The project also established a novel design and manufacturing technology for carbon fibre composite car bodies, expected to be viable from a manufacturing perspective for producing up to 20,000 cars per annum.
