Application of New Materials Technology With the Aim of Satisfying the Regulations
The reconstruction of the passenger car body is approached for several reasons: development of a new model, installation of a new unit, compliance with new regulations, weight reduction, introduction of new materials and technologies, etc. It can be realized through: constructive changes, introduction of new materials or combined. The paper analyses the effects of implemented changes in order to meet regulations as well as the need to change existing technologies on the example of a car body. The introduction of new materials can significantly improve the existing structure with minimal changes.
