MPC(reg) moldable phenolic composite material is for molding components that must endure high heat cycling and stress, yet provide resistance to cracking. This glass-reinforced material is targeted for molding powertrain and electric motor components where these components need to resist creep, maintain high strength and elastic stiffness, withstand high temperatures, and provide resistance to the chemicals found in automotive environments.
A bold, gold, open-air coupe may not be the ticket to automotive nirvana for every consumer, but Lexus’ LF-C2 concept car certainly turned heads at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show. What’s more, it may provide a glimpse of the luxury automaker’s future.
The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
