KIT Lightweight Design Network


The development of modern tailored lightweight materials depends on basic knowledge of their composition, their microstructure and their processing for each component. This history of a material influences the structure, the interface evolution in composites and potential microstructure defects. These facts suggest the physical properties of a composite material - vice versa, it is possible to tailor composite’s material design.
