The focus of research is on smart materials and high-performance composites as well as additive manufacturing processes, which are gaining in importance through a cooperation sealed this fall with the French Roberval Laboratory of the Technical University of Compiègne. A weighty contribution to these research issues will be made by Clarissa Becker, who will explore opportunities for improvement in 3D printing technology in her doctoral thesis (PhD). The German-born graduate of the master's program in Light Weight Engineering at the Carinthian University of Applied Sciences in the field of Engineering & IT will spend the first half of the three-year collaboration in France. There she will work on the optimization of 3D printed components made of fiber-reinforced plastic and in particular on the simulation of material behavior.
