In Conjunction with SAE

This 30-minute Webinar presents an overview of a four-year study that is a cooperative agreement between the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Automotive Materials Partnership. The objective of this $7 million partnership is to validate and assess the ability of physics-based material models to predict crash performance of automotive primary load-carrying carbon fiber composite structures.

The Webinar focuses on the joining of the front bumper and crush-can system components. The speaker panel will examine: joining approach and design, adhesive selection, joining procedure, and an assessment of the joining technology.

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and download additional resources.
