Call for papers: Research and Advances of Vehicle Body Engineering

Call for papers: Research and Advances of Vehicle Body Engineering

A special issue of International Journal of Vehicle Design

The evolution of the modern vehicle has led towards safety, comfort, and energy consumption. Vehicle body engineering plays an important role in the evolution of the entire vehicle. It includes exterior and interior design. It is also a multidisciplinary field that covers art, engineering, computer science, and psychology. The main topics involved in vehicle body engineering are vehicle styling, aerodynamics, materials, methods of design and manufacturing, occupant comfort, and safety. This special issue will focus on new research and advances in vehicle body engineering for automobile, aircraft, spacecraft, etc.

Topics include but are not limited to:
  • Vehicle styling
  • Lightweight materials
  • Vehicle aerodynamics
  • Occupant comfort evaluation
  • Safety
  • Geometric modelling
  • Reverse engineering
  • Ergonomics related to interior design
Important Dates
Submission of draft manuscript: 1 March, 2009
Feedback to authors and notification of acceptance/rejection: 1 July, 2009
Submission of revised manuscript: 1 September, 2009
