Lightweight design and Composite Technologies

We answer questions regarding the mechanical behaviour of polymers and composites using a range of appropriate experimental and numerical methods.

In order to use polymers and composites in an effective way, it is necessary to have a thorough understanding of the structural limits of these materials. This requires those involved in the testing process to be well-acquainted with the corresponding experimental and numerical methods for characterising the materials and their components. Whether you would like to replace complex metal structures with composites, take the fracture toughness of composites to extremes or test innovative bonding concepts, we have just the right expert for you.
