Project description

This PhD project will focus on the mechanical properties of fibre-hybrid composites by using micromechanical modelling on composites manufactured with controlled microstructure and design of the microstructure of hybrid composites for utilizing the synergetic effect by combining two reinforcement fibres, typically glass and carbon fibres, but alternative type of fibres, such as natural fibres and polymer fibres will also be investigated. This synergetic effect has attracted large interest in research communities in recent years but remains still be fully documented experimentally. The industrial support partner for the project is Fiberline, a Danish company, producing pultruded composite profiles for structural applications, like wind turbine blades.

Personal note

“The gladdest moment in human life, me thinks, is a departure into unknown lands.” – Sir

Richard Burton

Research has kindled my love for travelling, exploring new cultures, cuisines and interacting with people from diverse backgrounds. The nature of HyFiSyn project will help me realise this on a global level.
