Research Training Group 2430: Interactive Fiber Rubber Composites

Dresden researchers want to generate an innovative class of materials within the Research Training Group 2430 "Interactive Fiber Rubber Composites" (I-FRC), i.e. fiber-reinforced composite materials including structurally integrated actuator and sensor networks. It is aimed at the simulation-based development of smart material combinations to create so-called self-sufficient fibre rubber composites. For this purpose, actuators and sensors are directly integrated into these structures instead of adding them subsequently. Hence, systems become more robust and complex deformation patterns can be specifically adjusted, whereas these change are produced in a reversible and contactless manner.
