Research Field Composites


  • Novel semi-finished fibre products for composites components
  • Semi-finished fibre products for the implementation of coupling effects caused by anisotropy
  • Load path fair and near-net shaped semi-finished fibre products produced by knitting processes (Tailored Fibre Placement) and laying techniques (Near-Net-Shape)
  • Circular- and flat knit reinforced structures and semi-finished fibre products
  • Calculation, design and failure analysis for composite components
  • Numercial determination of quasi-static parameters of a unidirectional single layer for various semi-finished fibre products
  • Implementaion of cost-benefit analyses and lifecycle costings
  • Evaluation of textile processes for the application in composite components
