Objectives: At a Glance

New and Challenging Material Class

  • Discontinuous long fiber reinforced polymer structures with local continous fiber reinforcements
     

  • Significant potential for energy savings due to the high specific stiffness and strength
  • Variety of design options in diverse technical applications, e.g., in vehicle construction
     

          

Micro-CT scan of Sheet Molding Compound              Micro-CT scan of Long fiber reinforced
(SMC)
composite                                                   thermoplastic (LFT)


 

Interdisciplinar Research

  • Demand for interdisciplinary understanding of the corresponding process and material techniques along with the necessary simulation and product development methods
  • Research Areas


Challenges

  • Control of the virtual process process/component optimization
  • Handling, quality assurance control of the real process
  • Closely interlocked characterization and simulation strategy
  • New process technology for optimal design
