Research about thermal behaviour of composites - unique framework for simulations


Ghent University is researching the thermal behaviour of composites in the framework of a research project COMPOHEX (funded by Vlaio) on composite heat exchangers. This has resulted in a framework that allows to couple manufacturing simulations, CFD simulations and thermo-mechanical simulations, which is a unique feature.

The thermo-mechanical modelling includes the prediction of thermal conductivity and non-linear temperature-dependent mechanical behaviour using state-of-the art models.
