Ashok Leyland pursues stainless steel for bus ‘super structures’

2014-01-12
Researchers at Ashok Leyland make a case for choosing stainless steel over galvanized steel and aluminum for the complete bus structure. Although the initial material cost is higher for stainless steel, it scores better in other areas including mechanical and thermal properties and optimized structure weight. On the whole, the lower life cycle cost (LCC) offsets the initial material cost and yields rich dividends to the end customer, they claim.
