The current research project deals with the development of advanced CFRP technologies for the cost-efficient, green and reliable manufacturing of stiffened wing large aero structures by Liquid Resin Infusion.
Composite materials, especially those made with carbon fibre, have better specific properties than many traditional materials. This is especially true for the high volume industries of transport and wind-energy; both are driven by weight reduction.
Traditional materials such as metals have been characterized for over 50 years. Extensive data on the relationship between manufacturing parameters and final part qualities are available. The qualities include strength, stiffness, fatigue resistance...
