In order to fully exploit the high potentials of composite materials, efficient and qualified structural mechanical methods and tools are increasingly demanded. To cope with this we develop, verify and validate computational and experimental methods integrated in robust development processes from the preliminary design up to the detailed design phase. Within the scope of aerospace, aeronautical, automotive and railway transportation applications our focus is laid upon:
Supported by a highly qualified staff of scientific and technical employees, we bring structural mechanical methods and tools to application for our customers within concurrent/integrated engineering concepts in the following areas:
An example is our contribution to the European large scale project MAAXIMUS (More Affordable Aircraft structure through eXtended, Integrated, and Mature nUmerical Sizing), where we hold the lead for the sub-project "Design" and give scientific contributions on the topics Effects of Defects (EoD), postbuckling and "As Build"-analysis of advanced fibre placement methods development.
