HIGH-PERFORMANCE LIGHTWEIGHT STRUCTURES
The development of lightweight structures for the aerospace industry or the transport and energy sectors always lies at the heart of the work at the Institute - in one form or another.
CMC TECHNOLOGY AND STRUCTURES
In the design and construction of CMC structures (ceramic matrix composite), the Institute of Structures and Design not only sets the standard in the area of materials development but also applies this expertise to the development of components made of ceramic matrix composites.
LIGHTWEIGHT STRUCTURES FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS
The research field 'Lightweight Structures for Space Applications' has a clear focus: to consider the whole system in order to find new solutions for every detail. Spaceflight places many diverse demands on structural systems.
AERO ENGINE STRUCTURES
Air travel still faces the following problem: How do we balance the need for cost-effective and efficient transport with growing demands for sustainability and environmental protection? An important part of the answer lies in the systematic further development of various propulsion concepts.
