This article appeared in the July edition of the The South African Mechanical Engineer Vol. 67 magazine on NMMU Master's in Mechancial Engineering student, Martin Badenhorst’s work with the topology optimization & lightweighting of the NMMU Eco-Car Composite Wheel.

This process was also largely the content of his excellent presentation at last week’s Altair ATC: Europe Technology Conference in Frankenthal, Germany which was very well received, and commented on very favourably by senior personnel from Airbus, Porsche, Bentley, Ford, GM, Opel and various aerospace agencies that have all initiated strategic light-weighting programmes.
