Conference on High Temperature Performance of Composites looks at adding composites to your toolkit of materials

Posted on: 07/06/2018

Knowledge Transfer Network is organising a Conference on High Temperature Performance of Composites.


Aimed at researchers and engineers currently or anticipating having composites in their toolkit of materials, delegates will learn about the capabilities and latest projects in High Temperature Composites and network with key players in the field.

Composite materials are now accepted and widely used in a number of different sectors replacing traditional metals and alloys. As confidence in the material grows, engineers are demanding higher performance from them and in particular higher operating temperatures.

The Composites Leadership Forum identified in its strategy that improving high temperature performance of composites was a key Science and Technology Recommendation.

It is for these reasons that the Knowledge Transfer Network is organising this Conference on High Temperature Performance of Composites.

The Conference aims to highlight research in industry and academia in this area. The Conference will cover Structural Polymer, Ceramic and Metal Matrix Composites.

Representing the industrial end user perspective, there will be presentations from Rolls Royce (Aerospace), MBDA (Defence) and Seraphim Capital (Space).

Bitrez and TISICS will cover PMCs and MMCs respectively and CMCs will be covered by the Universities of Oxford and Birmingham as well as Lucideon and the National Composites Centre.

There will also be ample networking opportunities during the three scheduled breaks, not only with the speakers but also with fellow delegates.
