    Abstract

    The use of composite parts made from sheet molding compound (SMC), less than 35 wt% glass fiber, is well known in the automotive and transportation industry. Although the long term performance of these parts is important, most applications are primarily appearance parts with only minimal structural requirements. In these applications, the dynamic, load-bearing, performance of the SMC is not a major concern of the design engineer.
