Development of functional and weight optimized composites

 

 

We support you during the development and optimization of components made of composite materials. Here we have a strong expertise in material engineering, prototyping and finite elements applications. 

Layout and design of lightweight structures
  • function oriented development and design of lightweight structures
  • combinations of different material classes (e.g. metal, elastomer and others)
  • strain dedicated design and weight optimization of structures
Experimental determination of specific material parameter
  • planning and implementation of suitable tests
  • determination of statistical and dynamical material indicators
  • isotropic and anisotropic materials
  • embedding of experimental determined data within numeric material models
Pre-calculation by simulation
  • numerical investigation of the structure impacts by virtual modelling
  • sensitive studies by variation of different material parameter, circumstances and design methods
  • optimization of material combinations and design implementation
  • reduction of prototyping costs
Applications
  • dynamic impact scenarios, i.e. stone chips
  • development of innovative hybrid materials, e.g. elastomer composites
  • use in different applications
