Project summary

A new MTA–BME Momentum Research Group for Lightweight Polymer Composites has been established at Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Department of Polymer Engineering. The main aim of the research project is to create a comprehensive technological and modeling background for the novel hybrid TCM (thermoplastic composite material) process. In the project, the researchers will characterize the polymerization kinetics, crystallization kinetics and viscosity of the in situ polymerized thermoplastic for numerical modeling of the T-RTM (Thermoplastic-Resin Transfer Molding) process. Reinforcement structure development will be in focus regarding short and long fibers, such as conventional and 3D printing-based preform technologies for the designable load-bearing structures. Overmolding and overprinting will be further developed as conventional T-RTM technologies are limited in geometries. The project will focus on the numerical modeling and recyclability of these polymers, composites and hybrid composites.
