Faculty of Textile Engineering Labs

Laboratory of Composites and Nanocomposites | Ft.Tul.cz

The main objectives and activities

  • Development of composite structures with basalt and carbon fibers,
  • Development of nanoparticulate and nanocomposite systems with the aim of acquiring multifunctional effects (antistatic, antimicrobial, increased heat resistance, improved mechanical properties, self-cleaning effects, etc.),
  • Standard methods of testing of mechanical and thermomechanical properties of composites,
  • Development and application of new and non-standard measurement methods for reviews of hierarchical structures,
  • Modeling the geometry and properties of textile structures, simulation of behavior of composite, comprehensive review of hierarchical structures, quality of textiles and special criteria for the design of textile structures.
