Abstract

This work presents a state of the art (SotA) of recent developments related to the lightweighting of automotive structure by introduction graphene as material constituents. It proposes some innovative directions in terms of technological manufacturing and process for a better understanding of the graphene contribution for enhancing multifunctional properties of nanocomposites. Likewise, the general context of research trends is presented along with the novel composites solutions for the design of lightweight materials using graphene-based polymer composites. The need for developing a modeling strategy is discussed in terms of simulation and optimization of the multifunctional properties as well as the hierarchical modeling of hybrid composites. The large-scale production is presented through the existing process and manufacturing engineering. And finally, the industrial feasibility of such composite is presented by a demonstrator development and the life-cycle analysis.
