Development of new thermoplastic honeycomb sandwich core materials and their production process. The innovative new folded honeycomb core enables a fast core production from a thermoplastic sheet.
The main objective of the project is the development of a new, innovative and cost-competitive material based on a polypropylene matrix reinforced with modified natural fibres, intended for injection moulding process applied to the automotive industry.
The aim of the project is the development of new plastic materials.
Materials used in braided structures to reinforce polymer composites encounter interlaminar failure.A prototype of 3d braiding machine has been developed.Will implement the techn. In real industrial applications to undertake investigations.
Recycled paper industry faces increasing problems with fibre quality. Research will be executed on the possibilities of using specific fibre-modifying enzymes to improve pulp and paper properties. Action of the enzymes will be studied.
Combining an expert system of molecular genetic & classical medical data / integrating data-mining tools for analysis of genetic mutations with on-line solution / improving the patient file system and clinical registers.
A new method of paper and fine board sizing will be developed, with the objective of making them more resistant to the penetration of water and other liquids. This will minimise the disadvantages of current methods, improving final quality.
The econtent technologies umbrella will address active project collaboration between the digital content value chain (content owners, aggregators, users) and the infrastructure suppliers (devices, systems, networks).
Industry-driven cooperative r & d programme for maintaining european leadership in software-intensive systems (in which software represents a significant segment in system functionality, system development cost & risk, system dev. Time).
Classical micro-mechanical models are limited to linear phenomena. Our approach is focused on the description of damage and fracture. The final objective is to develop a predictive methodology to reduce prototyping costs.
