Offering engineers and material scientists an explanation of the complex interrelations between numerous lightweight construction methods, this book is didactically structured to cover the spectrum from determining requirements, to calculations and optimization, via component developments and choice of materials, right up to design and manufacturing techniques.
Examples from transportation and racing illustrate the methods and interdependencies between the choice of material and design.
