Composites UK has launched the programme for its first Confidence in Composites event, taking place from 15-16 October in Oxford. The event will look at the non-destructive evaluation, structural health monitoring and repair of fibre reinforced polymer composites during both manufacture and in-service.

Partnering with the American Composites Manufacturers Association, the abstracts submitted for this event have been peer reviewed by:

  • Prof Robert Smith, Professor of NDT and High Value Manufacturing - British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing
  • Uday Vaidya PhD, Chief Technology Officer, IACMI-The Composites Institute
  • Ajay Kapadia, Knowledge Transfer Manager - Composites - Knowledge Transfer Network
  • Rob Rose, Engineering Capability Lead and Responsible Level 3 | Non-Destructive Testing - National Composites Centre
  • Holly Phillips MBE, Principal Naval Architect - Royal National Lifeboat Institution
  • Richard Freemantle, Director, Wavelength NDT, Chair of BINDT Composites Group

“This new conference takes an in-depth look into how composite materials can be monitored, and as the title suggests, aims to increase the confidence in the use of composites over alternative materials, such as steel or aluminium,” commented Claire Whysall, Communications Manager at Composites UK. “We are thankful to those on our reviewing committee for supporting us in the putting together of this excellent programme of speakers.”

Presenters at the event include GKN Aerospace, the National Composites Centre, TWI, the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre and Lloyd’s Register, with companies such as Olympus, Inductosense and Baugh & Weedon NDE exhibiting.
