SMP 12/9/06 | Automobile Efficiencies: Reducing Fuel Use While Improving Safety | Speaker: Marc Ross
Saturday, December 9, 2006
170 & 182 Dennison Building
Speaker: Marc Ross, Professor Emeritus (U-M Physics)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.
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.
