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.
This workshop aims 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.
Renowned experts in the field of composite and metal research from IMDEA Materials Institute, HEXCEL Composites, Queen’s University Belfast, Carlos III University and Federico II University.

Training in transferable skills comes to an end. Today and the day before our ESRs are reflecting about career paths.
Paper on the dynamic characterisation of interlaminar fracture toughness in carbon fibre epoxy composite laminates
The first paper produced by the network, dealing with the Dynamic characterisation of interlaminar fracture toughness in carbon fibre epoxy composite laminates, is available in open access. You can download it here.
Training in transferable skills continues. Today (22/05/2019) our ESRs are learning about persuasive writing
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
