Full Time
Organization Type

The research program will develop in the frame of regional project Green Factory 4 Compo. Several kinds of polymer matrix composites with ceramic fibres (continuous or chopped) and textiles for automotive applications will be investigated. The composite materials under investigation will comprise both thermoplastic and thermosets matrices reinforced by glass or carbon ibers/textiles. Several concepts differing in the combination of matrices and fibres and based on different architectures will be compared. The effect of the processing parameters on the composite behaviour will be investigated. The composite materials will be characterized in terms of: microstructure, strength, stiffness, thermal and thermal-mechanical features.
