Process Simulation and Tool Compensation Methodology for High Temperature Composite Processes

Project description

Enabling the further exploitation of carbon fibre reinforced polymer composites

Lightweight and strong, carbon fibre reinforced polymer composites are finding increased applications in many areas – from aeroplanes, sailboats and motorcycles to laptops, fishing rods and golf clubs. The EU-funded ProTHiC project will develop materials, manufacturing, tooling and processing simulations technologies to further promote the use of carbon fibre reinforced composites, particularly in applications where the temperature requirements exceed 200 °C. Currently, titanium and superalloys are used in precisely these conditions. Specifically, the project will develop and characterise polyimide resins tailored for processing with resin transfer moulding. It will also establish a simulation-assisted tool design process.
