Welcome to the International Research Training Group GRK 2078 "Integrated engineering of continuous-discontinuous long fiber reinforced polymer structures" (CoDiCoFRP)

CoDiCoFRP stands for Continuous-discontinuous long fiber-reinforced polymer structures. These structures combine the design freedom of discontinuous- and the high stiffness and strength of continuous fiber-reinforced polymers. However, there is still a lack of proven concepts for the manufacturing, modeling and dimensioning of CoDiCoFRP. This is why it is the main objective of the International Research Training Group (IRTG) to train postgraduate engineers for the development of innovative lightweight technologies and to develop robust integrated engineering strategies.

Getting started

 

 

Educational program

The main objective of the International Research Training Group is to enable the efficiently structured education of doctoral candidates in the strategically important but not yet developed field of continuous-discontinuous long fiber-reinforced polymer structures (CoDiCoFRP).

 

 

Importance of the research field

Fiber reinforced polymers receive a lot of attention from industry and research due to their outstanding properties that have the possibility of creating revolutionary lightweight technologies. This affects transportation vehicles, such as cars, trucks, trains and airplanes and other products of daily life.

 

How does it work?
