Bionic pressure vessel

Bionic pressure vessel

No significant developments have occurred in the container design industry in the last 40 years. Therefore, the project aims to develop innovative design proposals using modern CAE tools and bionic concepts. Special focus will be put on the resource efficiency and sustainability of the equipment elements.
