SGL Group delivers SIGRAFIL 50k Carbon Fiber to the Institute for Computational Design at the University of Stuttgart

July 03 2017

The Institute for Computational Design and Construction (ICD) and the Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE) at the University of Stuttgart are currently researching a novel production process for architectonic structures based on SGL’s 50k fibers. An initial installation from the project can currently be seen on the University of Stuttgart’s inner courtyard. For this endeavor, 104 kilometers of carbon fibers were provided and delivered from our Moses Lake site in the state of Washington to Stuttgart.

The focus of the project is investigating natural biological construction processes of long span fiber composite structures.

Researchers at the ICD and ITKE, together with students of the master study program ITECH, are now trying to apply this special technique to the construction of architectonic structures made of carbon-glass-fiber-reinforced composites and develop a new production process based for fiber composite constructions. This approach enables a scalable production process for long span fiber composite constructions as they could be used in architectural design in the future.
