Technology Day 2: Composites for Harsh Environments in Defence

Composites Technology Forum for UK Defence: 2022 Technology Days

Wednesday, 22 Jun 2022

NCC and Online

The National Composites Centre is facilitating a series of Technology Days as part of the Composites Technology Forum for UK Defence. Each event will focus on a priority technology theme that has been identified and selected from a consultation with industry and the Ministry of Defence.

Each Technology Day will provide a collaborative discussion space between the Forum Steering Board, the UK industrial supply chain and academic communities that is focused around one of the priority technology themes. 


Technology Day 2: Composites for Harsh Environments in Defence

** Registration is now closed **

Date: Wednesday 22nd June 2022
Venue: National Composites Centre, Bristol (and online)

Our second Technology Day will focus on composites for harsh environments in the defence sector. We are inviting interest on the following topics:

  • Marine environment (surface and sub), saltwater, sea-ice and UV exposure
  • Acoustic fatigue and acoustic-thermal fatigue (jet and rocket propulsion)
  • Fire retardancy, resistance and containment, fire smoke and toxicity
  • Materials and degradation modelling for composites exposed to ionising and non-ionising radiation
  • Durability/exposure testing for composites materials
  • Environmental resistance coatings or additives for composites  

We are now reviewing submitted abstracts and will be inviting a number of participants to give a short presentation on the day and to engage in the collaborative workshop and discussions. If selected, we will contact you shortly with a link to book your place. Participation is free but spaces are limited and will need to be booked.
