There are several techniques to obtain recycled materials with various purity, even like virgin material. These techniques include hydrochemistry, pyro chemistry and super critical fluids. All these techniques are used at Chalmers University of Technology and have pros and cos, which we will discuss. on the webinar​.<br /><br /></div> <div><br /></div> <div><span></span><span style="background-color:initial"><span style="font-weight:700"><img src="" alt="Christer Forsgren" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" style="margin:5px;width:175px;height:175px" />Program​</span>:<br /></span><ul><li>12 PM, The webinar starts.

Furthermore, the use of vehicles and services based on electromobility is growing rapidly.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>In 2023, we follow up with an Initiative seminar focusing on the fact that <strong>Electromobility is here – are we ready?</strong></div> <div><br /></div> <div>In the seminar we discuss both current and future opportunities and challenges with electromobility. The day covers different perspectives of electromobility through a broad range of knowledgeable speakers. In addition, it offers a meeting place for representatives from research, industry and society, to come together and mingle. </div></div> <div><div><br /></div> <div><strong>Welcome!</strong><br /><br /></div> <div><em>Director Balázs Kulcsár and the Transport Area of Advance management team​<br /></em></div> <div><em><br /></em></div> <div><b style="background-color:initial">PROGRAM<br /></b><br /></div> <div><div>08:30 REGISTRATION, COFFEE &amp;

Composites with 3D-woven reinforcement could help fill this need, as they can outperform traditional laminated composites in several aspects. Due to the through-thickness reinforcements of these materials, they are able to suppress delamination and at the same time provide high out-of-plane strength and stiffness, as well as fracture toughness and damage tolerance. Further, several studies have shown that 3D-woven composites have promising specific energy absorption capabilities, which can be very relevant in reducing weight in the transport sector where high crashworthiness is a key requirement. </span><div><br /><span style="background-color:initial"></span><div><strong style="background-color:initial">However, for these materials</strong><span style="background-color:initial"> to be widely adopted in industrial applications, there is a need for better understanding of their deformation and damage mechanisms leading up to final failure. And as industrial product development is primarily simulation-driven, there is also a clear need to develop efficient and industrially applicable material models that can predict their non-linear behaviour.</span><strong><img src="" alt="Dr Bassam Elsaied" class="chalmersPosition-FloatLeft" style="margin:5px;width:184px;height:158px" /></strong></div> <div>In the current collaborative work, we have merged the expertise in physical characterisation and detailed modelling of 3D-woven composite materials at Bristol Composites Institute with the research activities at Chalmers where a flexible framework for modelling the same class of materials on the component scale has been developed.<br /><br /></div> <span style="background-color:initial"><strong>During the seminar,</strong> we will introduce the concept and general architecture of 3D-woven composites, present experimental results that illustrate its pseudo-ductile behaviour that provides promising energy absorption capabilities, and demonstrate current capabilities of modelling the mechanical behaviour of these materials on different geometrical scales. We will also discuss the potential of using so-called virtual testing as complement to physical testing. In the latter, numerical simulations on detailed and validated mesoscale models (developed at Bristol) can be used to generate additional (virtual) data for calibration and validation of a more industrially applicable macroscale model (developed at Chalmers).</span></div></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial"><br /></span></div> <div><span></span><a href="/en/areas-of-advance/materials/news/Pages/2022-tandem-seminar.aspx"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/ichtm.gif" alt="" />​H<span style="background-color:initial">ere you find Area of Advance Materials Science new exciting seminars all connected to the challenges of the future.</span></a><span style="background-color:initial"><br /></span></div> <div><br /></div> Initiatve Seminar 2023<p>RunAn, conference hall, Kårhuset, Campus Johanneberg</p><p>​Prel. theme is Production of batteries and battery technology systems</p>
