Sustainable use of natural fibres of local origin as reinforcement for composite materials for low cost and thermal insulated housing in the Peruvian Andean region: implementing a research group on composite materials at National University of Central Per KU Leuven
This project aims to improve the material living conditions of the inhabitants of the central Peru region, in particular the construction of inexpensive housing in rural Andean areas via the development of low cost building materials made of composites reinforced with ichu fibres, which are locally available. These local fibres serve not only as the reinforcing phase of the composite material, but also add thermal insulation properties, ...
MAterials design at the eXascale. European Centre of Excellence in materials modelling, simulations, and design Ghent University
The main goal of MaX is to allow the pre-exascale and exascale computers expected in Europe in the 2020U+2019s to meet the demands from a large and growing base of researchers committed to materials discovery and design. This goal will be achieved by:
i) an innovative software development model, based on the concept of separation of concerns, that will enable performance of the community codes on heterogeneous hardware architectures, ...
Experimental measurement of the mechanical behaviour of composite materials and hybrid materials subject to different types of impact loading Ghent University
An oscilloscope (100 MHz sampling frequency, 8 channels) was purchased for the instrumentation in the following research projects:
U+2022 Experimental and numerical study of slamming wave impact on deformable composite structures
U+2022 Energy absorption of pultruded composite tubes
U+2022 Experimental and numerical study of window glass with safety film
U+2022 Bird impact on composite plates and ...
Opportunities and pitfalls for sustainable materials management in European Union law EU materials law examined. KU Leuven
Pressures on natural resources, the environment and human health have increased in the past decades and will continue to rise if no changes will come about in many of our current patterns of resource extraction, manufacturing, product use and waste management. To this end, the European Union aims at transforming the Union’s economy from a linear system into a so-called Circular Economy, which is an economy based on a life-cycle approach. ...
Magnetic resonance equipment for advanced materials research: molecular characterization of solid, soft, homogeneous and heterogeneous matter in the development of advanced functional materials and chemical catalysis Ghent University
Voor het ontwerpen van nieuwe materialen via chemische synthese is de karakterisering ervan tot op moleculair niveau van cruciaal belang voor hun praktische ontwikkeling en uiteindelijk hun valorisatie in nieuwe toepassingen. De 22 leden van dit consortium zijn allen betrokken in de ontwikkelen van nieuwe materialen hetzij in vaste of zachte toestand, homogeen dan wel heterogeen van aard, in de context van onderzoeksgebieden die zich ...
