CRC 1615 - Project C01: Integration of components into adaptive geometries
October 1, 2023

Within this project, self-adaptive structures that control reactions based on the reactor conditions are investigated. In the beginning, suitable unit cells and materials for selected reactions are investigated, so that structures for high heat- and mass transport can be designed. With this, self-adapting, additive manufactured (AM) structures with temperature-controlled actuators, as well as self-adapting AM structures with pH-controlled actuators will be investigated. Furthermore, the integration of components for in situ detection & self-adjustment into AM structures is part of the research activities. The final step is the validation by means of experiments and CFD.
