The MODCOMP Project
Objective 1: To develop CF-based composites with multi-functionalities (i.e. a combination of enhanced mechanical properties, electrical conductivity, thermal stability, flexibility) by the incorporation of nanomaterials.
Objective 2: To develop cost-effective manufacturing processes which consider sustainability and recycling/energy (new (bio) – precursors/ bioresins and life cycle), and safety (safe-by-design and toxicology).
Objective 3: To evaluate new configurations in lighter structural composite taking advantage of nanotechnologies to sustain damage from lightning strike for Zone 2A of the Horizontal Tail Plane.
Objective 4: To look for the optimum processes and the best multiscale reinforcement combinations using synergistically experimental testing and analytical together with computational modelling techniques.
Objective 5: To use the CF-based materials developed from MODCOMP to re-design caliper and steering knuckles for brake systems with reduced weight (>20%), increased stiffness (>20%) and enhanced performance (faster response to driver actions and improved safety).
Objective 6: To demonstrate innovative secure storage modules, flat pack shelter system and training sailing craft with reduced cost and high performance (corrosion, UV and abrasion resistance, rigidity and increased thermal properties).
Objective 7: To promote the exploitation of industrial-preferred composite materials and standardize activities throughout the production chain.
Objective 8: To disseminate outputs for raising the profile of the new MODCOMP technologies.
Objective 9: To identify new potential market for the developed fibre-based composite materials in avionics, construction, and electronics industry.
Objective 10: To evaluate the industrial impact of MODCOMP-concept with respect to economic as well as technical aspects.
Objective 11: To open a new field of innovation based on materials and technologies development and push for the industrial leadership of Europe in strategic domains (electronics, defense, aerospace…).
EUROMOBILITA is Work Package 8 partner, responsible for Exploitation and Dissemination of project results.
Together with other project partners in WP8, EUROMOBILITA will develop and maintain Project website. Website will be divided into two sections: Public area and Member area.
Together with other project partners EUROMOBILITA will help to prepare Project Dissemination Strategy Plan.
EUROMOBILITA will set up and maintain Project mailing list, supporting Project partners and enhancing internal communication.
EUROMOBILITA will, together with other project partners, help to organise Final conference to present final results and impact of the project involving specific sector audience (scientific or industrial) but also the large audience (public).
