Improvement of bearing performance of CFRPs using 3D Noobed Composite Materials

Reference number 2018-04775
Coordinator RISE SICOMP AB - Swerea SICOMP AB, Linköping
Funding from Vinnova SEK 325 000
Project duration December 2018 - August 2019
Status Ongoing

Purpose and goal

The main objective is to investigate a new concept for improving the bearing performance which involves a non-woven 3D orthogonal reinforcing material called Noobed Material.

Expected results and effects

Fureho aims to serve and support the aerospace industry. Working in this project with partners such as GKN and SICOMP will provide direct inputs that will enable developing and designing Noobed Materials which meet with specific performance requirements for anticipated products. Aligning Fureho to the requirements of the Swedish aerospace industry will allow it to evolve into a specialized home-grown development partner to add value through its 3D Noobed Material solutions.

Planned approach and implementation

The project activities are divided as follows. Activity 1: Manufacturing, Activity leader: Fureho Activity 2: Sample preparation and testing, Activity leader: RISE SICOMP Activity 3: Damage Characterization, Activity leader: RISE SICOMP Activity 4: Reporting, Activity leader: RISE SICOMP Activity 5: Project closing workshop, Activity leader: RISE SICOMP Milestones 2019-01-07. M1: Kick-off meeting 2019-03-29. M2: Deliverable 1: Results from the testing and damage investigation 2019-04-15. M3: Project closing workshop and clear plan for future continuation
