Confidence in composites

The event is dedicated to non-destructive testing, structural health monitoring and repair of fibre reinforced polymer composites.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. Techniques for repair are well established, though in some cases further work may be needed to establish standardisation and good practice.

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.
