WG Thermoplastic Composites

The “Thermoplastic Composites” working group deals with all issues relating to the processing of continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastics. The entire process chain is considered, from the

WG Manufacturing Processes

For some time now, there has been a drive to manufacture high-performance fiber composite components wherever conventional construction materials have reached their limits. Due to

WG Automation

For a long time, fiber composite applications were characterized almost exclusively by small quantities, low volumes and preferably artisanal processes. The following stood in the

WG Additive Manufacturing

The research field of additive-generative manufactured components is very broad and currently encompasses the entire value chain from process and equipment technology to materials and

SWG Composite Fatigue

The sub-working group (SWG) “Composite Fatigue” brings together representatives from industry and science who are concerned with the failure of fiber composites. The main focus

WG Material and Component Testing

Essential work contents are: Closing of technology gaps to inline non-destructive evaluation (NDE) in automated manufacturing Drastic cost reductions for component NDE (both for NDE

WG Structural Integrity

The CU BW (CU Baden-Württemberg) cluster established the WG “Structural Integrity” in October 2014. The topics of crash, high velocity impact (HVI), damage tolerance (LVI),

WG Smart Structures

Multifunctional composites combine optimal structural mechanical performance with a variety of functional properties. The mechanical and diverse physical properties of the multifunctional composite can be

WG Multi-Material Design

The “Function-Integrating Lightweight Engineering in Multi-Material Design” (Dresden model) offers numerous advantages over conventional designs. In order to exploit these advantages and accelerate the industrial

WG Adhesive Bonding and Joining Technologies

As a joining technology, adhesive bonding technology covers topics ranging from the chemistry and physics of adhesives, joining parts and surfaces to the mechanical behaviour
