Fiber composites for car seats
Currently there is an effort to replace conventional construction materials – steel, by new modern materials. Ones of the new modern material we can include fiber composites materials. Basic fiber composite materials are composite with fibers of glass, carbon or linen. These types of composites are used in construction of car by their useful properties. Linen composites are used in interior of car for upholstery. Glass or carbon composites are used in the body part of car as bumper, mudguards, and door sections. Next possibility is used carbon fiber composites in construction of car seat. In the case of material replacement, it is necessary to compare the basic mechanical properties between the conventional material and the new material. Due to the anisotropic properties of fibrous composites, it is necessary to compare mechanical properties by experimental method on shape-like samples with real car seat parts. This article describes comparison mechanical properties of steel and carbon fibers composites on the specimen of the tube with circle and rectangle profile.
