With our expertise in fibre-reinforced polymers and light metals (and combinations of these two), we can offer ready-to-use solutions where weight, strength and maintenance are important.
ALE Delft works in different markets, ranging from aerospace specialty products to fibre research and testing. We are constantly expanding our knowledge to offer our clients the best possible solution.
In the study of composites materials, a FE model is developed of a single phase material by modelling the properties at ply level. For obtaining a proper modelling of the individual ply, a good understanding of the material behaviour is important. In order to investigate the material stiffness and strength, a multiscale modelling approach was used.
