Session One – Tuesday 12th November (10am – 1pm)

  • Composite materials – the basics;
  • Fibres and matrices;
  • Composite material market overview;
  • How a composite works;
  • Design/analysis of composites; and
  • Applications and case Studies.

Session Two – Tuesday 12th November (2pm – 5pm)

  • Composite material processing techniques – overview;
  • Processing materials;
  • Thermoplastic composites;
  • Processing thermoplastic composites; and
  • Inspection and repair of composites.

The training event takes place within the NEC so is in a convenient location for attendees of the Composites Engineering Show. Potential delegates can find out more information on the event website – www.compositesengineeringconference.com.
