Treatment and utilization of waste containing CFRP much more complex than previously thought

Experts presented research results and discussed the recycling pathways of carbon fiber waste

As part of the 69th Freiberg University Forum (69. Freiberger Universitätsforum – BHT) from 06 – 08 June 2018, experts from research as well as industry gathered with representatives of the coordination project FOREL (Forschungs- und Technologiezentrum für ressourceneffiziente Leichtbaustrukturen der Elektromobilität/Research and Technology Center for Resource Efficient Lightweight Structures of Electromobility) and the Federal Environmental Agency to discuss recovery scenarios for waste containing carbon fiber. For this purpose, the Institute of Mineral Processing Machines (Institut für Aufbereitungsmaschinen – IAM) of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg played host to the conference to present the latest findings on the recycling of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP).

Michael Klichowicz of the Institute of Mineral Processing Machines (IAM) today presented his research results for the validation of Discrete Element Method (DEM) simulations in front of approx. 200 experts at the International Comminution Symposium 2018 in Cape Town.

In his paper entitled “Validating DEM simulations using high-speed videos of crack propagation in granite”, he has demonstrated and analyzed impressive high-speed recordings of crack propagation in a thin granite slab.

The results are intended to advance the research at the IAM into the calibration of DEM models for the comminution of mineral structures.
