Introduction to Adhesive Bonding of Composite Materials – Part 2


The majority of parts composed of composite materials are joined with other parts before becoming the final product. Adhesive bonding is a common method of joining composites as it can be strong, quick, cost effective, and reliable, with minimal weight addition. An introduction to bonding composite materials will be presented in this two-part webinar series. ... Read more

Viscoelasticity and Composite Materials


Polymer matrix composites exhibit viscoelastic behaviour that may affect the long-term performance of the composite structure. Viscoelastic materials display energy dissipation and a memory effect meaning that past mechanical and thermal loads will alter the material. The determination of the material properties and the prediction of their long-term response requires a range of experimental, computational, ... Read more
