Research and Developement Leightweight Construction and Composite Materials

  • Manufacturing processes for composite parts like eg. automated fiber placement, thermoforming, diaphragma-forming, autoclave, resin transfer moulding, resin infusion etc.
  • Process simulation for composites: draping, filling, curing, process-induced deformations / spring in, residual stresses
  • Structural simulation and optimization
  • Material modelling (at micro-, meso- and macro-level)
  • Performing tests on coupon/material- and subcomponent/structural-level
  • Strain field and deformation analysis with digital image correlation
  • Hybrid materials and design (metal-composite)
  • Research cooperation with TCKT Transfercenter für Kunststofftechnik (www.tckt.at)
