WORKING GROUP 2 – Characterisation & Modelling
Working Group scope
Working Group 2 covers the analysis of properties and parameter determination of lightweight materials and their manufacturing technologies.
WG 2 members contribute to the development of new products and the verification of their properties. The development of useful real-world applications using lightweight materials will make products more sustainable due to lower material needs, bigger savings in greenhouse gas emissions and a longer lifespan.
As WG 2 works on making precise predictions about the behaviour of materials, it closely cooperates with all other WGs.
