This International Research Training Group (IRTG) 2078 provides a fully integrated engineering approach (processing, characterization, simulation, design) to continuous-discontinuous fiber reinforced polymers by combining the real process with the virtual counterpart (digital twin) in an integrated framework. The PP provides for a complex manufacturing process thermo-mechanical material and process data. Along the process chain, macroscopic and scale-bridging models are deployed. The virtual process is based on a material database and a model ontology.
