European Training Network “Joint Training on Numerical Modelling of Highly Flexible Structures for Industrial Applications”

Written by

spokesperson: Prof. Dr. Martin Arnold, coordinator: Sarah Keil and Claudia Weinhold-Kiefhaber (funding 2019-2024)

Highly flexible slender structures like yarns, cables, hoses or ropes are essential parts of high-performance engineering systems. The complex response of such structures in real operational conditions is far beyond the capabilities of current modelling tools that are at the core of modern product development cycles. The THREAD project will bring together young mechanical engineers and mathematicians who will develop mechanical models and numerical methods for designing highly flexible slender structures, and support the development of future virtual prototyping tools for products where such structures have a key role in functional system performance.

The European Training Network is funded by HORIZON 2020 – Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA). MSCA provide grants for all stages of researchers’ careers – be they doctoral candidates or highly experienced researchers – and encourage transnational, intersectoral and interdisciplinary mobility. The MSCA enable research-focused organisations (universities, research centres, and companies) to host talented foreign researchers and to create strategic partnerships with leading institutions worldwide.  website
