Product Design Process, LCA, structure and component optimization
2.3 Product design to promote recycling
We are looking for partners and networks in the field of product design process, including lightweight solutions, resource conservation and design promoting the recycling and re-use of components (incl. for example LCA in the design proces) for road and rail vehicle applications.
The DLR Institute of Vehicle Concepts is a non-university research institution in Germany.
The Institute researches, develops and evaluates new vehicle concepts and technologies in light of future demands on the transportation system. As a systems institute, we develop and demonstrate innovative, application-based solutions for road and rail vehicles, thereby contributing to the design of a sustainable and cost-effective, user-oriented, secure and networked mobility concept. Our contributions range from design and planning to construction, calculation and simulation through to the manufacture of research demonstrations, components and vehicles.
