Designing with Fiber

Component properties can be designed according to specific requirements with fibers.

Therefore, in depth knowledge of the mechanical properties of the anisotropic fiber-matrix-structures are required.

Such knowledge gets thought in the lecture "fiber composite structures" belonging to the Master program. Those can be produced at the moment through the manual lamination process and the vacuum infusion process.
