Handbook of Automotive Design Analysis
Both popular demand and price mechanism have created a need for mass-producing cars and commercial
vehicles at minimum cost.
In turn, the resulting and inevitable planned obsolescence requires frequent model change. From now on, a serious time factor has entered into the development programs; so the automotive designer must himself turn to analytical techniques.
Designers and systems analysts have a new commercial importance, not just to attract customers with new and improved designs but to ‘engineer’ them well enough in the design office so that lengthy development programs of rig and road proving are curtailed to the minimum
The Handbook of Automotive Body Construction and Design Analysis provides detailed guidance on all aspects of design feasibility and pre-construction checks.
Examination of body design as it related to construction techniques is a critical step in bringing concepts to market, and this book
provides essential guidance on topics including structural design, fabrication techniques, material, finishing, safety considerations, and more. Examples a case studies provide real-world context, and expert insight provides value to readers in any automotive setting.
