Saturday Morning Physics
Automobile Efficiencies: Reducing Fuel Use While Improving Safety


Add to Cal
  • Host Department: Physics
  • Date: 12/02/2006
  • Time: 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

  • Location: 170 & 182 Dennison Building

  • Description: Reducing the mass of motor vehicles is critical to improving their fuel economy. It is commonly accepted that lighter cars will be more dangerous. In the first talk, we will examine technologies that can result in dramatic improvements in fuel economy. The second talk will explore how improved design can result in decreased vehicle mass while preserving safety.

    Detailed Information
    All talks are free and refreshments will be served. Visitor parking for the seminars (Central Campus) is across the street from the Dennison Building in the U-M Church Street structure. There is a $2.00 parking charge implemented by U-M Parking Services.
