CHARGER XL: A LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIALS DEVELOPMENT VEHICLE

The substantial development efforts made by the steel and aluminum industries have resulted in high strength-to-weight ratio materials that can be employed to achieve significant vehicle weight reduction. The theoretical concept of vehicle interactive weight reduction was presented in a previous work. The present work reviews this theoretical concept and presents an experimental application: Charger XL, a lightweight materials development vehicle. /GMRL/
