Webinars on the dynamic properties of composites

8, 15, 22 & 29 JULY 2020

 

Composite materials are nowadays extensively used in applications where outstanding mechanical properties are necessary together with significant weight savings. Their increased use presents new challenges to designers specially in those applications where materials are subjected to dynamic loading and impact events.

These series of four free webinars aim providing specialized engineers and researchers in the field with a rapid knowledge of the state-of-the art regarding dynamic behavior of structural composites, including mechanical characterization and advanced modelling techniques.

 

08/07/2020 12:00 – 13:00 hours CEST   Performance priorities of composites for Dynamic Applications (Benjamin Russell, HEXCEL Composites) Registration

15/07/2020 12:00 – 13:00 hours CEST   Micromechanical modelling of the dynamic behavior of composites: the challenge of determining the constituents’ properties under impact loading (Mario Rueda, IMDEA Materials) Registration

22/07/2020 12:00 – 13:00 hours CEST   Damage assessment of composites subjected to impact loading (Federico Sket, IMDEA Materials) Registration

These events are organized as part of the DYNACOMP (Dynamic behaviour of composite materials for next generation aeroengines) training network, funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions under grant agreement nº 722096.

Training course on “Economics, finances and business models”

Our Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) received a 2 day course on economics, finances and business models on 5/02/2019 and 12/02/2019. The course was delivered by RTDI and covered the following topics:

  • Theatre of business models
  • Business modelling: Team work over a real case
  • How to innovate business models and chaired discussion around real cases
  • Uptake of new technologies: Loop, dynamics and decision-making
  • Economic and finances: Basic concepts and quantitative techniques; Study cases
  • Giving value to innovation projects: Basic concepts and quantitative techniques; Study cases and discussions
