Technology Day 6 - Joining Technology for Composites in Defence

Wednesday, 04 Oct 2023

National Composites Centre, Bristol

We are partnering with TWI for our next Technology Day.  TWI is one of the world’s foremost independent research and technology organisations, with expertise in materials joining and engineering processes.

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.

This Technology Day will encompass a comprehensive range of topics related to composite joining techniques, ensuring that the Defence industry stays at the forefront of innovation.

Here's an overview of what we'll cover:

  • Mechanical Fastening Composites
  • Adhesive Bonding Composites
  • Welding Composites (Thermoplastic)
  • Joining Strategies for CMC’s and Metallic Materials
  • Joint Design
  • Joint Inspection and Assurance
  • Joint Durability and Testing
  • Mechanical Fastening

We are now open to receiving abstracts for presentations from academics, the supply chain, and experts in the field. If you're enthusiastic about sharing your insights, research, or breakthroughs, this is your chance to shine. Selected participants will have the opportunity to give a presentation on the event day.

The deadline for abstracts submissions is: Friday 22 September.
