Multi-component, microinjection moulding technology facilitates the efficient, large-scale manufacturing of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). These systems will be embedded into semi-finished metal sheets suitable for subsequent in-line tape-laying for integration into hybrid metal/FRP structures (SP A1). Therefore, material-scientific, process-technical, and metal transformation issues will all be clarified. Thus, polymer films have to be microstructured to form cavities for back-injection moulding as well as in-situ-contacting and combination of active piezoelectrical elements using electroconductive and insulating thermoplastics. These intelligent metal sheets can be manufactured more efficiently, due to decreased production times and costs in comparison to classic sequential technologies. Embedded sensor system platforms and according measurement approaches will be developed for local signal processing and wireless data exchange.

Exzellenzcluster im Rahmen der dritten Runde der Exzellenzinitiative des Bundes und der Länder zur Stärkung der universitären Spitzenforschung.
 
Der Forschungsbereich F des Exzellenzclusters MERGE beschäftigt sich mit der Simulation und Optimierung von kurzfaserverstärkten Kunststoffbauteilen. Hierzu werden sowohl Fertigungssimulationen des Spritzgussprozesses als auch Belastungssimulationen der Bauteile mit Methoden der numerischen Strömungsmechanik und der finiten Elemente durchgeführt. An der Professur Praktische Informatik werden Methoden zur Integration unterschiedlichster Simulations- und Anwendungsprogramme in den komplexen Optimierungsablauf für Leichtbaustrukturen entwickelt. Ein Schwerpunkt bildet dabei die Entwicklung einer Kommunikationsbibliothek zur programmtechnischen Kopplung von eigenständigen Softwarekomponenten, die auf verschiedenen Rechnerplattformen flexibel verteilt ausgeführt werden. Weiterhin wird die effiziente Verteilung von rechenintensiven Simulationsaufgaben auf in Umfang und Rechenleistung variierenden Rechenressourcen untersucht.
