|Full title:||Modified cost effective fibre based structures with improved multi-functionality and performance|
technological demands are increasingly stretching the properties of advanced
materials to expand their applications to more severe or extreme conditions,
whilst simultaneously seeking cost-effective production processes and final
products. The aim of this project is to demonstrate the influence of
different surface enhancing and modification techniques on CF-based materials
for high value and high performance applications. These materials are a route
to further exploiting advanced materials, using enabling technologies for
additional functionalities, without compromising structural integrity. Carbon
fibre (CF) based materials have particular advantages due to their
lightweight, good mechanical, electrical and thermal properties. Current
generation CFs have extensively been used in a multitude of applications,
taking advantage of their valuable properties to provide solutions in complex
problems of materials science and technology, however the limits of the
current capability has now being reached. |
MODCOMP aims to develop novel fibre-based materials for technical, high value, high performance products for non-clothing applications at realistic cost, with improved safety and functionality. Demonstrators will be designed to fulfil scalability towards industrial needs . End users from a wide range of industrial sectors (transport, construction, leisure and electronics) will adapt the knowledge gained from the project and test the innovative high added value demonstrators. An in-depth and broad analysis of material development, coupled with related modelling studies, recycling and safety will be conducted in parallel for two types of materials (concepts):
• CF-based structures with increased functionality (enhanced mechanical, electrical, thermal properties).
• CNF-based structures for flexible electronics applications.
Dedicated multiscale modelling, standardisation and production of reference materials are also considered.
