Metalcasting is one of the oldest manufacturing processes, dating back over five millennia.  However, recent advances continue to expand the horizons of metalcasting. This session will cover the latest developments in metalcasting technologies for the automotive, aerospace, off-road, commercial vehicle, and small engine industries. Part 1 of this session is focused on lightweight casting solutions.

Presentations in this session include welding (i.e., friction stir, ultrasonic, resistance, arc, laser, etc.) and joining (i.e., brazing, soldering, riveting, bolting, and adhesives) of similar or dissimilar materials (i.e., plastics, composites, aluminum, magnesium, titanium, and conventional and advanced high strength steels). Strength, fracture, and fatigue implications of these methodologies will be discussed.

Modern advanced high strength steels, aluminium, magnesium and composites offer a wide range of material grades and manufacturing process choices for the body structural systems. The presentation will discuss effective design strategies for light duty vehicle lightweighting for year 2025. The results of a recent study, light weighting of Light Duty Truck, funded by NHTSA will be presented. The purpose of this study was to design a light-weighted light-duty pickup truck that can, at minimum, meet the performance functions of a MY 2014 baseline vehicle while controlling for both direct and indirect cost to maintain affordability. To determine the most efficient usage for various material choices, a unique CAE optimization driven engineering and design process will be presented. The design methodology used on the vehicle structures has proved to yield very unique light mass efficient solutions.
