Fraunhofer LBF

Fraunhofer Institute for Structural Durability and System Reliability LBF

Research with experts.

Based on strong core competencies, namely numerical and experimental structural durability, system reliability, smart structures and plastics technology, Fraunhofer LBF provides services along the entire value chain, extending from the material and its processing to implementation of the finished component and qualification in respect of safety and reliability. This takes place in the fields of vibration technology, lightweight design, reliability and polymer technology. In the field of polymer technology, the institute supports its customers at a very early stage of value creation with synthesis and in-depth material characterization.

Around 380 employees at Fraunhofer LBF, together with some 40 colleagues in the associated specialist field of System Reliability, Smart Structures and Machine Acoustics SAM at the Technische Universität Darmstadt, put their expertise into interdisciplinary project work for the development of advanced R&D services. Future-oriented research topics evolve in active collaboration with customers and partners. Over time they are developed into specific product and process innovations.

Thanks to eight decades of experience in cooperating with OEMs and subcontractors, with large industrial companies and SMEs, with partners from industry, commerce and from science, the institute‘s scientists now have a strong understanding of systems and value creation
