Objectives - InverTec

The innovative contribution of the intended research project is the development of new high performer's inverse hybrid composite, consisting of a continuous fibre reinforced thermoplastic matrix, in which a metal insert will be integrated. Besides the improvement of crash performance, the metallic insert is to be additionally used for the effective connection of the composite to the adjacent metallic structures. For the efficient manufacturing of the novel composite in high-volume applications, conventional sheet metal forming methods shall be used. Due to the application of established technologies, high investment costs at the SMEs were avoided and the entry barrier for the use of composite materials is lowered. The project approach has a great economic and industrial importance for SMEs in terms of weight and load equitable production of highly complex components and structures. Multi-material solutions can offer significant weight advantages in mobile applications, compared to classical metallic constructions. In consequence this is leading to significant energy savings and the reduction
of CO2-emissions.

The project aims to consider the following main topics:

  • Load optimized inverse composite design

  • Efficient manufacturing methods

  • Simplified modular crash testing bench
