Bicycle Frames: Introduction
Bicycle frames were initially made of wood, until the advent of steel tubing, which continues to dominate to the present day. But aluminium alloys and aluminium-matrix composites, titanium and magnesium alloys, and carbon fibre composites now all compete with steel. This case study explores the competition, and rationalises the material selection using more advanced application of property charts.
This case study exploits property charts in a more complex way than the other case studies.
