We need the right people at the right place to do so. People who turn visions into reality – who think outside the box and promote innovation. People who are ready to push the envelope. Are you ready?
The change in the Automotive Industry towards electrified powertrains and functionalities as well as the endeavor towards higher sustainability also effect the material selection in passenger cars. High-performance plastics, ceramics or fiber-reinforced polymers show benefits over aluminum or steel in some application areas. However, they also have disadvantages in other areas. In this thesis, material trends shall be identified and assessed with regards to their applicability (e.g. use cases, material behavior, production processes, development trends). Final target of the investigations is to develop material roadmaps for different application areas in the vehicle.
