The SBO project InterPoCo is a 4-year strategic research project that will lay the foundations for the H-INT-S program by taking a detailed look at the interface in steel fiber composites and self-healing capsules in polymer matrices.
This detailed look involves novel material characterization techniques, a multiscale model of the soft/hard matter interface and screening of the materials using high-throughput technology to support and validate the modeling work.
The output of this SBO project is directly linked to the vertical programs SHE and NANOFORCE.
This project is part of:
"Looking at soft/hard matter composites": establishing a knowledge base for an intelligent design of functional polymer-based composites with a primary focus on the key importance of the interfaces between the functional elements and the polymeric matrix.
