Conference Proceedings
Developments in Thermoplastic Door Modules
Maria Cilberti, September 2002
The use of door modules as a pre-assembled functional unit inside a car door is discussed. This includes reasons why a door module should be used and why a long glass fibre reinforced PP material is a good choice. As an example the development of the door modules for the new Ford Fiesta is given including the mechanical and production design of the StaMax P carrier. Special attention is paid to the excellent dimensional reproducibility of this material. Further integration potential for future door modules is also highlighted.
Applications of Carbon Fiber SMC for the 2003 Dodge Viper
Mark Bruderick, September 2002
The 2003 Dodge Viper Convertible makes the first automotive use of carbon fiber sheet molded composite (CFSMC) in nine components to provide structural performance and to achieve significant weight savings. Right and left fender support systems employ a total of six carbon fiber composite moldings. In addition carbon fibers are used to provide selective stiffening to the windshield surround and door inner structures which consist primarily of conventional glass fiber SMC (GFSMC). The design and analysis materials and process and performance of these innovative composite structures are discussed
Alternatives in Fiber Reinforced Thermoplastics
Nathan Johnson, September 2002
PowerPoint Presentation at ACCE 2002.
Creating High Performance Conductive Composites with Carbon Nanotubes
Pat Collins, September 2002
Multiwall carbon nanotubes are a very small high aspect ratio conductive additive for plastics. The high aspect ratio means that a lower loading of nanotubes is needed compared to other conductive additives. This low loading preserves more of the resins toughness especially at low temperatures as well as maintaining other key performance properties of the matrix resin.
