Launch of new project “COOPERATE”

The project "CO2-neutral, lifetime-optimized, short fiber reinforced thermoplastics for dynamic applications - COOPERATE" has started at the Chair of Carbon Composites. The proposal of the project addresses the reduction of emissions by fundamentally improving product design and design methodology with regard to life cycle assessment and sustainability. Our responsibility in the project includes the process simulation of short fiber injection molding, and the virtual characterization of the resulting composite material to obtain the homogenized mechanical properties.
The project partners besides the Chair of Carbon Composites are C. & E. Fein GmbH, BOGE Elastmetall GmbH, TECNARO GmbH and Fraunhofer LBF.
The project is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
