transportCO2 by 2020
LATEST2Vision/Research Theme
  • Support dramatic reductions in the environmental
    impact of
  • transport by facilitating a step change in
    high-performance light alloy design solutions in
    the automotive and aerospace industries. RoCO2

  • Address the key materials engineering issues and
    technologies required to enable introduction of a
    second generation of increased performance light
    alloy materials in more mass efficient products,
    utilising multi-material structures, and more
    complex components. architectures

Vehicle transport roadmap CO2 emissions to be
reduced to 95 g/km by 2020 and then from 20 to
80 below 1990 levels by 2050 aviation, 50 of
2005 levels by 2020

Berger, Lesemann Sahr, 7th European LS-DYNA
Conf (2009)
Joining and corrosion protection are challenges
for multimaterial car body design (Dilthey
Stein, Sci. Tech. of Welding and Joining, 11,
135-142 (2006))
Further requirements
  • Increased performance light alloys integrated in
    multi-material designs
  • Reduced energy, environmentally-compliant
    manufacturing processes
  • Increased use of recycled materials, greater
    service life, enhanced functionality
  • Accelerated time to market, enhanced modelling
    and simulation tools
