In the automotive sector, multi-material assemblies represent opportunities for several applications. Indeed, the composite/steel assembly can be used both for the inside as well as for the bodywork of a vehicle, to lighten the weight of the vehicles.


The project is designed to develop, test and validate structural multi-material structural assemblies. Considered materials are steel and thermoplastic composites (polypropylene and polyamide) implemented by injection and by thermo-embossing. Overmoulding, gluing and mechanical assemblies are developed.
