The further development of digitization enables the application of new processes in the construction industry, especially for the use of fiber reinforced matrices, hybrid technologies and multi-material lightweight design. The development and implementation of new methods and processes is essential for this. This working group provides a platform for all interested parties to exchange experiences and ideas across sectors.
The main topics of the WG include:
- Lean Construction
- Automated manufacturing
- Additive manufacturing
- Standard manufacturing processes
- Quality management
- Cross-sectoral cooperation – mechanical engineering
- Cross-sectoral cooperation – textile technology
- Non-metallic reinforcement construction
- Material-specific process design
- Transport and assembly
- Construction site, construction operations
- Formwork techniques, formwork construction
Our aim is to develop and provide guidelines/knowledge databases etc. for the use of fiber reinforced matrices in the construction industry. This requires close cooperation with other WGs of the CU Bau network. This joint work with other WGs of Composites United e.V. in the fields of automotive, aerospace, ceramics, politics and sustainability generates an added value that is unique worldwide.
WG leader: Prof. Dr. Sandra Gelbrich

YOUR FUTURE WITH MULTI – MATERIAL LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION
Book tip: Glossary for construction and mechanical engineering
Springer-Verlag has published the technical book “Fachbegriffe für Kompositebauteile – Technical terms for composite parts” by Prof. Ralf Cuntze. The book is aimed at beginners and dimensioning engineers, focusing on highly stressed components made of fiber composites, i.e. (carbon) fibers with polymer and concrete matrix. The comprehensive glossary in German and English contains terms and their definitions including abbreviations and indexes as well as a classification scheme for component-reinforcing fiber composites.
