Current research projects focus on hydrogen tanks made of fibre composite material as storage tanks. In addition to their low weight, these offer mechanical properties that can be adapted to the application. An alternative to the production of hydrogen tanks is offered by the multifilament winding process, which can process a large number of fibers simultaneously and thus reduces cycle times. However, this process lacks technical design tools, material characteristics and models necessary for economically and socio-ecologically sustainable production. One of the research projects at the Institute of Textile Technology (ITA) is aiming at ensuring the economical and sustainable manufacture of pressure vessels for the automotive industry.
