RISE introduces the Fatigue4Light project during the presentation of the Sweden’s first test bed for sustainable composite manufacturing
The Fatigue4Light project was represented during the presentation of the Sweden’s first test bed for sustainable composite manufacturing organised by RISE – The Research Institutes of Sweden, in September 2021.
Magdalena Juntikka, PhD and Senior Researcher from RISE, participated in the event and took the opportunity to present Fatigue4Light as a key European project developing lightweight solutions adapted to the chassis parts of Electric Vehicles to enhance weight reduction compared to current solutions and increase vehicles’ safety due to reduced sprung mass.
Within the project, affordability including critical raw materials for EU assessment, and sustainability of the proposed solutions, will be enhanced based on the application of an eco-design approach supported by the application of LCA and LCC studies.
RISE contribution to Fatigue4Light
In Fatigue4Light, RISE is responsible for the manufacturing of multi-material demonstrators, investigating and validating the use of optic fibre sensor as a structural health monitoring for chassis parts. RISE also takes part in the modelling work for multi-material solutions via the development and validation of a fatigue model. Additionally, RISE participates in development of eco-design methodologies.
