Thus, the properties of most load bearing metals and ceramics, in service, are largely unaffected by temperature and temperature change. In contrast, the melting points of semi-crystalline polymers are lower, with PTFE at 327 °C, nylon 66 at 260 °C, PP and PVC at 175 °C, PE at 143 °C and natural rubber at –39 °C. Their Tg values are even lower, a little above room temperature for thermoplastics and well below room temperature for rubbery materials.

It was also found that using wider tyres improved the roadholding and braking, and there has been a progressive trend to ever wider tyres. Tyres changed radically during the early post-war period, firstly by the general introduction of tubeless tyres, where the outer casing forms an airtight seal with the wheel rim, eliminating the need for an inner tube. Tubeless tyres are less prone to explosive puncturing than the older tubed variety, as the thick rubber of the tyre tends to form a seal around any sharp penetrating object.

12 Interior refinement The most noticeable feature of recent car development has been in the area of refinement. Modern family cars are not greatly superior in performance to specialist high-powered vehicles of the 1930s, but they are much quieter and easier to drive. The quietness is largely due to advances in the techniques of dynamic analysis and design: an area where mathematical analysis has had a major impact. Sound insulation and the isolation of reciprocating or vibrating components have become increasingly effective.
