Modern materials and their incorporation into vehicle design Rob Hutchinson, BSc, MSc, MRIC, CChem, MIM, CEng The aim of this chapter is to: • • • • Introduce the broad range of materials that designers can draw upon; Introduce the properties of materials that are required for vehicle design; Demonstrate particular uses of material properties by case studies; Demonstrate the material selection process and its interactivity with design.

1 Introduction The main theme of this chapter will be the study of the various inter-relationships between the structure of engineering materials, the methods of component manufacture and their ultimate designed behaviour in service. The four major groups of engineering materials are metals and alloys; ceramics and glasses; plastics and polymers and modern composites, such as silicon carbide reinforced aluminium alloys. Illustrative case studies will make up a significant section of this chapter.

Unfortunately, these hardened steels become brittle following this heat treatment, so that a further mild re-heating, Modern materials and their incorporation into vehicle design 31 called tempering, is required. This reduces the brittleness whilst maintaining most of the strength and hardness. Stainless steels are alloys with a variety of forms, Austenitic, Ferritic, Martensitic and the newer Duplex steels. A common composition contains 18% chromium and 8% nickel, as shown in BS 970, 1991. Their corrosion resistance and creep resistance are superior to plain carbon steels, particularly at high temperatures.
