First results in the EU-project

Spannungsverlauf Microdraehte

For more than a year we are a proud partner in the INFINITE – EU Project under the leadership of IDEKO Research Center. We realized already first FEM analysis of the CFRP structure with microwires. The specimens were subjected to thermal loads and the influence of different material parameters (such as the coefficient of thermal expansion or the shear moduli) of the orthotropic material as well as different ply orientations were investigated.
