With a body in white (crew cab and bed) at pounds lighter than conventional competitors, the F offers Increased load capacity and improved economy.

The Aluminum Extrusion Manual has just been updated with new, previously unpublished content! Three new sections have been added or expanded: Sustainability - Learn some of the ways that the use of extruded components are reducing the environmental impact of buildings and vehicles; Fabrication - Expanded to include the myriad ways in which aluminum extrusions can be processed after extruding. Aluminium Automotive Manual The Aluminium Automotive Manual aims at providing technical information on aluminium automotive applications. The information is compiled into PDF documents which are classified into six major categories: applications, design, materials, products, manufacturing technologies and joining techniques. Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books. My library.   Crash energy management in composite automotive structures complete vehicle assemblies. Although significant energy absorption has been demonstrated by these composite structures, further development is necessary to demonstrate that the desired collapse modes and load distributions can be attained in various real-world crash situations.

Aluminium in Automotive Industry The usage of aluminum in automobiles has been gradually increasing; Improves vehicle performance. Reduces CO2 emissions and Boosts fuel economy; Pound for pound, aluminum can absorb twice the crash energy of mild steel and it can provide a weight savings of up to 50 percent compared with. trucks that are safer, greener and more energy efficient. As automakers work toward meeting current CO2 and fuel economy targets of mpg for the model year, mass reduction is a key strategy employed to achieve demands. As a result, aluminum-intensive vehicle (AIV) bodies and multi-. Bigger IS Better and Safer. Size, not weight, is the leading automotive safety determinant. High-strength, low-weight aluminum can be used to maintain or even increase the size and energy absorption capacity of a vehicle’s critical front and back-end crumple zones for improved safety, without increasing vehicle weight overall. Aluminum Subframe Design for Crash Energy Management The engine subframe (cradle) is an important contributor to crash energy management in frontal impact for automotive vehicles. Subframe design can enhance vehicle crash performance through energy management.
