There’s still time to register for the Providing Confidence in Composites for Construction event!

On 28th April 2016, the NCC will be hosting the Providing Confidence in Composites event. The event will run from 9.30am - 4.30pm with registration open from 8.15am. 

This free, one day event will publicise and demonstrate how outcomes/outputs from the DURACOMP project will benefit industry and academia. It will also include a tour of the NCC facilities. 

The DURACOMP project, funded for three years by EPSRC, looked to tackle a significant factor limiting uptake in the construction industry - durability. This project looked to achieve this through the integrated development of methodology and tools for durability assessment and design. Through the EPSRC Ground and Structural Engineering Research Challenge Call in June 2013, DURACOMP started to investigate the long-term degradation processes of construction composites in order to enhance confidence in their durability. To this end the project has undertaken an ambitious, integrated programme of physical testing and computational modelling that bring new insights into the behaviour of composites. The project utilises advances in multi-scale analysis to develop a computational, predictive modelling capability for the response of degrading of composites. This combined with structural-level testing and with uncertainty quantification, the project generated information and tools to investigate and design the reliability of service lives of safety critical structures. 

Deadline for registration is Tuesday 20th April 2016. With only 100 delegate spaces available, register now to get your free place.
