Natural fibre (NF) reinforced composites offer high specific mechanical properties and are an ecological alternative to synthetic fibre-reinforced composites. While having great potential, their use today is limited to non-structural applications, mostly with epoxy or polypropylene matrices. This work studies suitable high-performance...

To reduce the cycle time of structural, automotive thermoplastic composites, we investigated the potential of direct thermoplastic melt impregnation of glass fabrics using an injection moulding process. At the high pressures that occur during the process, the effect of the fabric architecture on the impregnation, compaction, volume fraction...

Adhesive joining of carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) is cumbersome due to the careful surface preparation required and multiple validation steps to certify adhesion quality. Further these joints are often supplemented by mechanical fastenings add weight whilst also localising bearing stress. As an alternative technique, CFRP parts can be...
