Dr. Oğuz ERYILMAZ is a research associate at Marmara University, Faculty of Technology, Department of Textile Engineering in Istanbul, Turkey. He was a guest research associate at RWTH Aachen University in ITA (Institut für Textiltechnik) from 2109 to 2022. His main research area is Textile-Reinforced Composites which comprise a textile form as 2D/3D braided, woven, and multiaxial fabrics. His specific research fields are:
Radial Braiding and Automated Fiber Placement (AFP) Technology for Composite Structures
Composite Pressure Vessel Manufacturing Process for Hydrogen Storage Systems
Thermoset and Thermoplastic Composite Structures Used in Aircraft and Space
Natural Fiber Composite Application for Sustainable Transportation
His hobbies are mostly related to aviation. He has been one of the CTO's of Rocket Teams at Marmara University for 3 years. He has been making static model aircraft for 7 years. He is especially interested in commercial aircraft and fighter jet. Currently, there are 5 large body, 7 narrow-body, 7 fighter jets and 1 piston engine in his collection. He frequently visits aviation museums (Technik Museum Sinsheim, Dornier Museum Friedrichshafen, BMW Welt Museum, Turkish Air Force Museum Istanbul, etc.). Also, he enjoys watching Formula series and investigating composite technology (e.g. flexi-rear wing and aeroelasticity of composites) for F1 cars.
