VIRTEST project

VIRTEST is an industrial contract with Fokker Aerostructures to develop a novel multiscale simulation strategy to predict the mechanical behaviour of aeronautical composite laminates structures under static and low-velocity impact loads. VIRTEST will lead to a significant reduction in the number of physical tests required for material certification and will shorten the time necessary to design new aerospace structural components at Fokker.
