The use of continuous fiber-reinforced plastics with thermoplastic matrix systems in the aviation industry requires the development of suitable manufacturing technologies for this material combination. One promising process in this context is Automated Fiber Placement (AFP). Learn more about the process chains for the production of structural components and why the degree of crystallinity is decisive.
For safety reasons, it is very important to know the behavior of supposedly non-combustible materials under fire conditions: What happens with the building material? How durable are the building constructions? We show how to use the Kinetics Neo software to predict the material behavior under fire conditions.
In the field of Thermal Analysis, coupling is typically used to characterize the chemical components of the gases released during heating, an approach called Evolved Gas Analysis (EGA). Learn how to gain a deeper insight about the type and composition of your materials by means of EGA.
