KATHOLIEKE UNIVERSITEIT LEUVEN

Research in polymer matrix composites in the Department of Metallurgy and Materials Engineering (MTM) of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven was started in 1982 at the beginning of the postdoctoral research of Ignaas Verpoest. During the first, exploratory years, many different research topics were covered, mainly related to the mechanical behavitheir of composites. Gradually, emphasis was put on textile reinforced composites, on advanced processing methods for composites and on sandwich materials. More recently, research on natural fibre composites and multilevel composites (containing nano- and meso-reinforcements) has become more important.
