About Me

My Ph.D. project is entitled "Global simulation model of Laser-assisted tape winding (LATW) process". This project is a part of EU funded Horizon 2020 project named “ambliFibre”.

An integral global process model will be developed for virtual processing, including not only the kinematics of the process but also the optical and thermal phenomena. This information can be used to determine the processability and process settings up front, preventing time and material intensive prototyping on a trial-and-error base.

My role in this project is to develop a global 3D process model for offline process optimization purposes. Also, determining material parameters (optical, rheological, thermal, …) required for process modeling.
