Metal Matrix Composites

Process simulation for squeeze infiltration of metal matrix composites (MMCs) and assessment of textile interactions

Metal Matrix Composites (MMC) offer superior performance at elevated temperatures. Especially Carbon fiber reinforced aluminium offers potential for an excellent performance to weight relationship. CIKONI GmbH develops process simulation methods for squeeze-infiltration of aluminium matrix fiber composites.

Carbon fiber winding of pressure vessels

Development of hydrogen pressure vessels with multiscale simulation

Hydrogen storage as an enabler for sustainable mobility Hardly any other technology brings engineers and environmentalists together faster than hydrogen/fuel cell propulsion. After all, the vision of emission-free energy generation and use seems obvious: Theoretically, hydrogen can be produced by electrolysis with renewable energies without […]

Additively manufactured roof frame with local carbon fiber reinforcement

To date, polymer-based additively manufactured structures have failed to gain a foothold in vehicle bodies due to inadequate mechanical characteristics. Now, Audi and CIKONI have presented an approach combining additive manufacturing with carbon fiber reinforcement based on a concept study. You can either review the […]
