The video takes a closer look at what the Iowa State University is doing to solve problems using material science.
Professor John Kieffer’s group at the University of Michigan are studying nanoparticle polymer composites both experimentally and computationally. They are focussed on the role that the interface plays in the properties of the composites. They use laser spectroscopy methods to characterise the materials.
Bowen-Davies and dozens of his fellow students from the University of Maryland are chasing one of aviation’s last milestones: the Sikorsky Prize. The American Helicopter Society (AHS) has promised $250,000 to the team that can build a human-powered helicopter. All it has to do is hover for a minute, reach a height of 3 metres [...]
In this episode of Surf Sufficient, they take a comprehensive look at ding repair basics with professional surfboard repair specialist Franklin Pierce. Author of the classic manual, “Fiberglass Ding Repair,” Franklin walks us through the steps to seal a ding properly.
A look at the IYRS Composites Technology program which has an intensive, six-month schedule that goes into more depth than some other training programs and blends theory with hands-on training.
Step-by-step video tutorial showing how to repair light damage to a broken or damaged composite kayak, canoe or boat using kevlar.
In desert ‘aircraft graveyards’, where retired planes often go when flight service ends, good parts are removed and sold and many materials are recycled. Increasingly popular strong, light carbon fibre composites (or carbon fibre reinforced plastics) were once too difficult to recycle, so went to landfill. In the past decade, researchers at Nottingham led by [...]
Case study into the manufacturing impact of Nanotubes in Composites, carried out by the Cranfield University Innovative Manufacturing Research Centre
This practical guide explains exactly how to use the Resin Infusion technique to make a strong and light carbon fibre part with a perfect, pin-hole free, surface finish. Follow the video step-by-step, including never shared before professional techniques and you too can master this technique.
University of Bristol demonstrates how links with the Composites industry are important on many levels, including partnering for research.
