Developing high pressure hydrogen CFRP tank for fuel cell vehicle
Investigating strength prediction simulator for CFRP members
Investigating manufacturing simulator for thermo-set and thermo-plastic CFRP
A methodology to develop carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) members has been investigated based on manufacturing and strength simulations in the framework of multi-scale modeling. A methodology to distinguish carbon fiber and resin seems promising for overcoming conventional trial-and-error design method of CFRP members.
