Εngineering, production and life cycle management for the complete construction of large length FIBRE-based SHIPs
The goal of FIBRESHIP is to enable the construction of the entire hull and superstructure of large-length seagoing and inland ships in fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) materials by overcoming several key technical challenges.
To achieve this objective, the project will develop, qualify and audit innovative FRP materials for marine applications, establish new design and production guidelines and procedures, devise efficient production and inspection methodologies and develop new validated computational analysis tools. The different technologies generated in FIBRESHIP will be validated and subsequently demonstrated using advanced simulation techniques and experimental testing on real-scale structures.
