When it comes to mega trends driving efficiency and sustainability for industry, the advanced materials space is one of the most dynamic, high-potential areas for technological advancement. Only in recent decades have advanced materials found their way into mass production, from aluminum and magnesium alloys to carbon fiber composites.
In pursuit of a more sustainable mobility future, researchers at the Clemson Composites Center worked with public and private organizations to develop a lighter, stronger, smarter vehicle door using advanced materials.
Expanded in 2020 with a 1,000-ton HP-RTM, the Clemson Composites Center has partnered with the U.S. Department of Energy and Honda R&D to engineer and build a lighter, scalable, manufacturable door.
