Preface by the editors: This book is a text on automotive materials, arising from presentations given at the fifth Oxford–York–Kobe Materials Seminar, held at the Kobe Institute on 10–13 September 2002. 

The Kobe Institute is an independent non-profit-making organization. It was established by donations from Kobe City, Hyogo Prefecture, and more than 100 companies all over Japan. It is based in Kobe City, Japan, and is operated in collaboration with St. Catherine’s College, Oxford University, United Kingdom. The chairman of the Kobe Institute Committee in the United Kingdom is Roger Ainsworth, master of St. Catherine’s College; the director of the Kobe Institute Board is Dr. Yasutomi Nishizuka; the academic director is Dr. Helen Mardon, Oxford University; and the bursar is Dr. Kaizaburo Saito. The Kobe Institute was established with the objectives of promoting the pursuit of education and research that furthers mutual understanding between Japan and other nations, and to contribute to collaborations and exchanges between academics and industrial partners. 

The Oxford–York–Kobe seminars are research workshops that aim to promote international academic exchanges between the United Kingdom/ Europe and Japan. A key feature of the seminars is to provide a world-class forum focused on strengthening connections between academics and industry in both Japan and the United Kingdom/Europe, and fostering collaborative research on timely problems of mutual interest. 

The fifth Oxford–York–Kobe Materials Seminar was on automotive materials, concentrating on developments in science and technology over the next ten years. The cochairs of the seminar were Dr. Hisashi Hayashi of Riken, Dr. Takashi Inaba of Kobe Steel, Dr. Kimihiro Shibata of Nissan, Professor Takayuki Takasugi of Osaka Prefecture University, Dr. Hiroshi Yamagata of Yamaha, Professor Brian Cantor of York University, Dr. Patrick Grant and Dr. Colin Johnston of Oxford University, and Dr. Kaizaburo Saito of the Kobe Institute. The seminar coordinator was Pippa Gordon of Oxford University. The seminar was sponsored by the Kobe Institute, St. Catherine’s College, the Oxford Centre for Advanced Materials and Composites, the UK Department of Trade and Industry, and Faraday Advance. Following the seminar, all of the speakers prepared extended manuscripts in order to compile a text suitable for graduates and for researchers entering the field. The contributions are compiled into four sections: industrial perspective, functional materials, light metals, and processing and manufacturing.The first four and seventh Oxford–York–Kobe Materials Seminars focused on aerospace materials in September 1998, solidification and casting in September 1999, metal and ceramic composites in September 2000, nanomaterials in September 2001, and spintronic materials in September 2004. The corresponding texts have already been published in the IOPP Series in Materials Science and Engineering and are being reprinted by Taylor & Francis. The sixth Oxford–York–Kobe Materials Seminar was on magnetic materials in September 2003 and the eight Oxford–York–Kobe Materials Seminar will be on liquid crystals in April 2008.

From Back Cover:
The current automotive industry faces numerous challenges, including increased global competition, more stringent environmental and safety requirements, the need for higher performance vehicles, and reducing costs. The materials used in automotive engineering play key roles in overcoming these issues. Automotive Engineering: Lightweight, Functional, and Novel Materials focuses on both existing materials and future developments in automotive science and technology.

Divided into four sections, the book first describes the development of future vehicles, aluminum alloys for manufacturing lighter body panels, and various polymer composites for stronger module carriers. It then reviews state-of-the functional materials and smart technologies and projects in which application areas they will most impact future automotive designs and manufacturing. The next section considers the difficulties that must be overcome for light alloys to displace ferrous-based materials and the increasing competition from lightweight polymeric-based composites. The final section explor processing and manufacturing technologies, including welding and joining, titanium alloys, and durable, high-performance composites.

With contributions from internationally recognized experts, this volume provides a comprehensive overview of cutting-edge automotive materials and technologies. It will help you understand the key materials and engineering concerns currently confronting this industry.

▪️ Covers in detail the key designs and novel materials presently used in the industrial manufacturing sector 
▪️ Outlines the application of functional materials, such as magnetorheological fluids and smart structures, to several areas of automotive technology 
▪️ Presents the challenges of using light alloys in automotive structures 
▪️ Explores emerging processing and manufacturing technologies, including Ti Al-based intermetallic alloys, sheet-molding compounds (SMCs), and Z-Fiber pinning
