Research title: Structure investigation and engineering of man-made cellulose fibre reinforced composites for lightweight applications (SIROCO) (Scientific supervisor: Dr. Mindaugas Bulota)

Fibre composites have proven to be irreplaceable when good performance and lightweight is needed. The production and usage of lightweight materials are of outmost importance in order to meet the performance demands of future products, e.g. ultralight vehicles. It is crucial to manufacture materials which require little energy to produce, can be recycled and are made of renewable resources in order to ensure sustainability. Hence, fibre made of cellulose – the most abundant natural polymer on Earth, will be used in the project to produce lightweight high performance composites. The main objective is to link micro and meso properties of the tailor made fibre and macro performance of composites
