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.

COVID-19 update

Following the Prime Minister’s Briefing on Monday 23 March where he gave clear guidance for the nation to stay at home, and in line with University of Bristol action to close down all of its buildings, the NCC has taken the decision to close both the NCC HQ and NCC Filton centres until further notice, effective from 24 March 2020. 

The vast majority of NCC staff have already been working from home, successfully holding digital meetings with our members, customers and other partners and will continue to do so. You can still get in touch with us through your usual contacts via email and phone, or please email info@nccuk.com. We are in touch with our customers to discuss arrangements for our current projects.

Thank you for your understanding and patience. We will continue to update our website and social media channels to keep you informed.
