National Physical Laboratory conducts survey on composite processing measurements

At this stage, feedback is required to help define the current and future challenges in measurements and monitoring methods. National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is working on a three year National Measurement System (NMS) funded project on the Development, Validation and Standardisation of Composite Processing Measurement Techniques.

This project aims to help improve the embedded quality and durability of composite materials during the production processes.

Objective

The objective will be to consider the standardisation and control of production processes using on-line, offline and post production measurement techniques.

These include ply/fibre placement, resin characterisation (assessment of the degree of cure, cure shrinkage), preform characterisation (compressibility, waviness, drape, fibre volume fraction, porosity), prepreg characterisation (tack, drape, volume fraction, waviness), permeability measurements and process parameters in order to improve embedded quality.

Feedback

At this stage, feedback is required to help define the current and future challenges in measurements and monitoring methods. The progress of the project, results and output will be disseminated via the Industrial Advisory Group meetings and other events.

Industrial Advisory Groups act as focal points for open discussion and views in support of current research projects. You can hear about the aims and progress of the National Measurement System (NMS) funded core research at NPL through joining an Industrial Advisory Group. It is an opportunity to interact closely with NPL influencing direction, dissemination routes and further work, and offer materials for testing and research targeted on your own requirements.

The Composite processing measurements survey is available at www.surveymonkey.com/s/DZGHKD7 to complete.
