Technology Day 3: Composites for High Service Temperature

Composites Technology Forum for UK Defence: 2022 Technology Days

Wednesday, 28 - Thursday, 29 Sep 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 3: Composites for High Service Temperature

*Registration has now closed*

Date: Wednesday 28th and Thursday 29th September 2022
Venue: National Composites Centre, Bristol (and online)

Do you have a novel materials or manufacturing technology relating to the use of composite material in high temperature service environments? Our third Technology Day will focus on composites for high service temperature. We are inviting interest on the following topics:

  • High Tg polymer matrix composites technology (200C and above)
  • Metal matrix composites technology for high temperature applications
  • Ceramic matrix composites technology for high temperature applications
  • Thermal barrier coatings for composites, heatshields and ablatives
  • Novel materials for high temperature hypersonic flight applications
  • Testing of high temperature composites (methods and standards development)
  • Composites design for high service temperature
  • Thermal modelling for composites in high temperature
  • Joining technologies for composite assemblies in high temperature applications, i.e. thermal expansion matching

Day 1 of the event will focus on polymers and metal matrix composites. Day 2 will focus on ceramic matrix composites. Participants are welcome to attend a day of their choice or both days. 

We are now reviewing submitted abstracts and will be inviting a number of participants to give a short presentation at the event 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.

    Technology Day 6 - Joining Technology for Composites in Defence

    04 Oct 2023
    We are partnering with TWI for our next Technology Day.

    For our next Technology Day, we’re diving deep into the realm of joining composites in Defence applications. This event is a unique opportunity for academics, the supply chain, and experts in the field, to come together and explore the cutting-edge world of composite materials. Join us as we unlock the potential of these advanced materials and their integration into the Defence sector.
