Dr.-Ing. Tobias Wille

Dr. Wille is head of the department Structural Mechanics at the DLR Institute of Composite Structures and Adaptive Systems in Braunschweig, Germany.

During his 14 years work experience at the research establishment DLR he was enabling research developments for industrial application. Besides other projects Dr. Wille was co-ordinating the EU-funded project ECOMISE (608667, 2013-2016) and the German funded project CompTAB (2010-2013), which were both accomplished with aeronautic industry.

Within ECOMISE, a breakthrough production system was developed for significant cost reduction of thermoset composite manufacturing and postprocessing. This was achieved by integrating process simulation, process monitoring and in-situ structural evaluation.

Within CompTAB, composite process chains were derived for industrial applications enabling first time right composite manufacturing with less empirical trial runs.
