The demand for a reduction of weight in automotive application is increasing in several research and development projects. The reason for that are the decline of resources, strict laws for emissions and an increased awareness of natural environment. Fiber reinforced plastics (FRP) can be used to decrease the weight of automotive structures as load path directed material distribution is possible.
As FRP structures are specifically manufactured for each application the integration of additional functions as for example sensors or heating elements implemented directly into the structure is possible to save secondary weight. Using a virtual process chain the development of complex structures can be optimized.
These topics are focused in the research project DigitPro and LeiFu as part of ARENA2036.
