CoDiCoFRP stands for Continuous-discontinuous long fiber reinforced polymer structures. These structures combine the design freedom of discontinuous- and the high stiffness and strength of continuous fiber reinforced polymers. However, there is still a lack of proven concepts for the manufacturing, modeling and dimensioning of CoDiCoFRP. This is why it is the main objective of the International Research Training Group (IRTG) to train postgraduate engineers for the development of innovative lightweight technologies and to develop robust integrated engineering strategies.
