A lightweight suspension-arm made of carbon-fiber reinforced polymer and featuring several integrated functions has been developed by Fraunhofer LBF. Design and prototype manufacturing have already been presented in Lightweight Design 1/2015. The suspension arm’s weight is lower than that of conventional metal designs by around 35%. At the same time, a Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) System as well as a system for semi-active vibration-damping have been integrated into the suspension-arm’s structure.
