The stability and rigidity of fiber reinforced structures are subject to a wide variety of factors. These can include predictable aspects like the choice of suitable fibers and a matrix of adequate mechanical features. Furthermore, surface treatment of the fibers may result in effects that influence the adhesion of the matrix to the fibers. In addition, the production process has an effect on the arrangement and waviness of the fibers.
Every project which involves new combinations of fibers and a matrix, or even new production methods, requires a determination of the relevant material properties. Leichtwerk AG uses testing procedures which attain results that are precisely coordinated with the computational simulation.
