BUILDING ON PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE
- A composite wheel has already been designed and tested with TUV criteria
- Hub/spokes connection solution developed
- Rim fibre continuity
- Modal shapes and frequency as the key for car handling
- Corrosion and creep: the aging is a key parameter in the selection of the curing cycle and matrix material. The partners have developed a strategy to manage this.
THE POWER OF THE PARTNERSHIP
- Interdisciplinary know-how at top level & experience shared between partners
- Technology will lead the design
- Material building block approach
- Logistically easy for the partners and the European OEMs.
