The Aluminium Automotive Manual aims at providing technical information on aluminium automotive applications. The information is compiled into PDF documents which are classified into six major categories: applications, design, materials, products, manufacturing technologies and joining techniques.
The current version of the manual contains information developed within the 1st edition which was published in 2002 as well as updated documents developed in 2011 and 2015. The 2011 update focused mainly on the two categories applications and design. The 2015 update has focused on the Joining section.
