    Abstract

    Global warming, continuous demand on energy from fossil fuels as a limited natural resource, and costumers’ high expectations regarding product quality are three global challenges that the automotive industry is facing. Fuel consumption reduction has a significant impact on preserving fossil fuels, lowering fossil fuel dependency and the CO2 emissions that result in global warming. Weight reduction of car bodies, as so called Bodies-In-White (BIW), is one possible solution that the automotive industry can invest on. However, there are other conflicting parameters to weight reduction such as passenger safety and formability, which need to be considered simultaneously...
