Research projects

SFB 692 - High-Strength Aluminium-Based Lightweight Materials for Safety Components (Subproject C4 - Target Life Cycle Costing)

Development, fabrication and characterization of novel lightweight materials and their use in safety-relevant applications is at the heart of Collaborative Research Centre 692 – "High-Strength Aluminium-Based Lightweight Materials for Safety Components". Organized in 18 subprojects the research focuses on the following three fields of activity: high-strength Al wrought alloys, Al matrix composites and Al-coated magnesium.

The objective of subproject C4 "Target Life Cycle Costing and Management" is to design instruments for the appraisal and controlling of new materials‘ profits. It is concerned with the conceptual development of an evaluation technique for the lifecycle and target costs of new production materials as well as a proper configuration of relating processes.

Chemnitz Economic Papers

Chemnitz Economic Papers are the working paper series of the Economics faculty of Chemnitz University of Technology. As an electronic publication series they replace the faculty's discussion paper series that was formerly available in print.

Chemnitz Economic Papers aim to reflect the full breadth of the faculty's research in economics, business administration, informatics and law. Chemnitz Economic Papers are distributed via the faculty's website as well as the research platform RePEc (Research Papers in Economics), which guarantees maximum international visibility.
