MTM: Research groeps: Composite Materials
The Composite Materials Group has four research
focuses:
• Composites on Micro- and Nano- Level: “engineering” by intelligent
•
•
•
placement of nano-reinforcements
Composites on Macro- and Meso- Level: experimental and
modelling studies of textile composites, random fibre composites,
textiles, porous materials and biomaterials
Natural and biobased composites: fibre morphology and mechanical
performance, fibre-matrix interfacial adhesion, novel fibre processing
methods
Processing and product development: concurrent optimisation of
products and manufacturing processes
MTM: Research groeps: Metals and Alloys
The Metals and Alloys group deals mainly with the
plasticity of advanced metallic materials. Its activities
include:
• Analysing and modelling of microstructure and texture evolution during
•
•
•
plastic deformation
Deriving physics-based constitutive laws for their mechanical
behaviour
Developing dedicated characterisation methods for their complex
microstructures
Participating in the development of innovative deformation processes
MTM: Research groeps: Materials
Performance and Non-Destructive Testing
The Materials Performance and Non-destructive
Testing group investigates the long-term behaviour and
reliability of materials. Damage development during
different loading types is studied, using a number of
Non-destructive and advanced monitoring techniques:
Acoustic emission, real-time microfocus X-ray
radiography, nano- and micro-computed tomography, eddy
currents, ultrasound, optical fibre sensors etc…
Besides polymers, ceramics and metals, research is also
dealing with advanced materials such as particulate or
fibre reinforced composites and cellular materials.
