New Materials for Lightweight Construction – Development, Visions and Application
The market of the new materials is diverse and is enlarging explosively. The focus of this investigation is on materials that are applicable for lightweight construction and are therefore considered independent of the current interdisciplinary application. In order to be able to use material innovations or to combine them newly, it is reasonable to question and value them critically. Here, the purely creative aspect referring to the surface and/or the design of the materials is supposed to be ignored for the time being. In the following, categories for new material generations and technologies will be presented.
