SAE International Symposium Examines the Application and Economics of Composites in Mobility Industries

WARRENDALE, Pa., March 6, 2014 - As today’s mobility industry faces economic challenges that may composites from being used on a mass scale, composites still remain on the leading edge of material development.

The “SAE International 2014 Design, Manufacturing and Economics of Composites Symposium” will bring together experts and influencers from High-Performance Composite organizations to address the economics of composites, as well as the practical application of manufacturing composites from the aerospace, automotive, commercial vehicle, wind energy, rail, and marine industries.

The symposium, which will be held June 10-11, 2014 at NH Parque Avenidas in Madrid, Spain, is relevant for engineers working across all mobility industries, including aerospace, automotive, commercial vehicle, marine, wind energy, and motorsports.

Topics will include:


- Aerodynamics


- Bodies and structures




- Design processes and tooling


- Environment
