International Journal of Automotive Composites provides comprehensive explanation of how advanced composites (FRPs, reinforced thermoplastics, carbon-based composites and many others) are designed, processed and utilised in automotive vehicles. It includes technical explanation of advanced composites in vehicle design/analysis and covers all phases of composites design, analysis, modelling, testing, manufacturing and failure analysis. It also sheds light on the performance of existing composites and future developments in automotive materials technology. The term, 'automotive', includes passenger cars, sport utility vehicles, vans, trucks, buses and recreational vehicles.
