Simulation and development of sustainable composite material from renewable resource for structural applications

Start date


End date


The general aim with the project is to develop a computer model and simulate mechanical and thermal properties of sustainable composites, for the use in structural, load bearing composites. The aim is further to expand the model and simulate manufacturing and acoustic properties. The targeted composite applications are in automotive industry, building industry as well as the furniture and interior design industry, where there is a great interest for novel sustainable materials, which are based on biobased raw materials, and which can be recycled in a carbon dioxide neutral way.
