Applied research on composites themes
Researching themes that are relevant
At Inholland Composites, the applied research we do is driven by our values: creativity, sustainability and health. From an industry perspective, we link our research to themes that are relevant and current in the world surrounding us. For our students, lecturers and researchers, our research themes offer a challenging and multidisciplinary framework for learning and developing new skills.
Automation in composite manufacturing is essential to the future growth of the composite industry. Smart manufacturing is the way to larger production volumes, better employee safety and health conditions, and higher product quality.
The benefits from composites offer ample avenues for improving our environment, but why not take it one step further and use nature’s materials in composite structures design?
Next to ‘ageing aircraft’, we also see wind turbine blades reaching their operational life, and mass-produced composite cars are no longer future visions. All these structures are based on all-composite load-bearing elements which, due to damage or ageing may at some point need structural repair.
