Workshop 1: Affordable composites

  • Introduction to Multi-Scale Material Modelling
  • Metal Replacement for Lightweighting & Cost Reduction
    • Characterization of chopped fiber reinforced polymers
    • End-to-end analysis of reinforced plastic parts with Digimat-RP
  • Multi-Scale Modeling for Affordable Composite Solutions (CFRP)
    • Progressive failure analysis framework
    • Virtual allowables or how to reduce the time & cost of CFRP characterization
  • Additive Manufacturing (SLS & FDM ) of Reinforced Polymers
    • Material engineering of reinforced polymers for 3D printing
    • Process simulation for predicting the warpage of 3D printed parts
    • Stiffness & failure prediction as a function of the material and printing direction
