THREAD in ECMI’s Annual Report

POSTED: 26 August 2020

The European Consortium for Mathematics in Industry (ECMI) presented THREAD in its annual report.

Highly flexible slender structures like yarns, cables, hoses or ropes are essential parts of high-performance engineering systems. The complex response of such structures in real operational conditions is far beyond the capabilities of current modelling tools that are at the core of modern product development cycles. Marie Skłodowska-Curie funding of the THREAD project will bring together young mechanical engineers and mathematicians, who will develop mechanical models and numerical methods for designing highly flexible slender structures, and support the development of future virtual prototyping tools.
