Development and manufacturing of hybrid self-reinforced composites with a unique combination of stiffness and toughness

The key challenge of this PhD project is to develop new hybrid textiles that will lead to composites with a unique combination of stiffness and toughness. The project will focus on developing hybrid self-reinforced composites with a step-increase in stiffness, whilst maintaining high impact performance and a failure strain above 10%. The selected fibre-hybrid composite will then be tested in at least one commercial application.
