Advanced experimental and simulation tools for analysing woven fabric composites

At CRN Okanagan node, we work on advanced characterization, simulation and process optimization of fibrous materials. We have a collection of testing facilities as wells as in-house fixtures for characterizing woven fabrics. Multi-scale FEM models developed by CRN researchers allow advanced simulation of real engineering applications. We also explore areas such as embedded sensors for process and lifecycle monitoring, Industry 4.0 integration, machine learning analytics and optimization.
