Plastics and Composites Contributions to Solve Aerodynamic Problems Created by the Style in the Automobile Industry 870715

The benefits of the plastics and composites materials contributions to the specifics satisfaction of the Aerodynamic and Style needs, are well known. Mainly the two qualities which are used, are the freedom of design and the high complexity of parts.
But, some of the fundamental aspects or, of the variations, the stylists must obtain around the basic level of a vehicule, are in opposition with the aerodynamic specifications. For instance the problems of the front end with a grill or the architectural problem of the rear end when the spare wheel is under the body are descrided further.
We explain how plastics and composites has given technical solutions to such problems with a costly acceptance.
