Multi-scale Composite Material Selection Platform with a Seamless Integration of Materials Models and Multidisciplinary Design Framework


1 January 2017 - 31 December 2020


Cardanit, the BPMN editor powered by ESTECO, will contribute to the mission of COMPOSELECTOR project, funded by the European Union through the EU Horizon 2020 programme.


COMPOSELECTOR is an ambitious, innovative and timely project whose aim is to develop, demonstrate and assess an integrated software platform based on a multi-disciplinary, multi-model and multi-field approach for decision-making in the selection, design and fabrication of micro-structured and macro-structured polymer-matrix composite materials. The project will enable greater strategic use and integration of materials and modeling in business processes. it combines technical and commercial expertise from academia, a Research and Technological Organisation (RTO) and industrial entities to support a new paradigm in micro-structured and macro-structured PMCs selection where it is crucial to identify concurrent material-selection factors within the value chain. The achievements of this project will improve material selection, design and process capabilities as it creates an accessible platform for the use of computational materials science and physics at the early stages of design.


Cardanit will contribute to the project’s mission by participating in the development of a Business Decision Support System (BDSS), which integrates materials modelling, business tools and databases into a single workflow to support the complex decision process involved in the selection and design of polymer-matrix composites (PMCs).

The project kick-off meeting took place on 11th and 12th January 2017 in Luxembourg.
