Confidence in Composites

Tuesday, 15 - Wednesday, 16 Oct 2019

Oxford, UK

Defects and damage occur in all materials.  In fibre-reinforced polymer composites (FRPs) defects and failure modes can be very different from those in metallic and other materials.  Over the last few decades non-destructive inspection and monitoring methods have developed both to assure quality and consistency in manufacturing and to identify and predict defects in service due to fatigue or damage. Capability is growing in maturity in several sectors, especially aerospace, renewable energy and construction.  This event will showcase the latest non-destructive evaluation and testing (NDE/T) technologies, structural health monitoring (SHM) techniques and approaches to repair for composite materials through case study presentations and demonstrations.
