Intelligent Sensing Programme 43: Sensing in Composites

AMRC Boeing

Composite materials are increasingly being used in many industries including aerospace, off-shore renewables, civil construction, automotive etc; 50% of the Boeing 787’s total structural weight can be attributed to composite materials. A number of key issues remain which prevent the wider uptake of composites into industry.

  1. Knowledge of the material behavior during cure process and integration during assembly is inadequate.
  2. A second issue concerns the in-service condition and Structural Health Monitoring. Of particular interest is the behavior of such materials in high temperature applications and harsh environments.

Event Information: The 43rd ISP event aims to bring together academics and industrialist partners in the areas of composites and the sensing and instrumentation community. The event aims to deliver a series of end-user talks that discuss the challenges in composite monitoring and also from novel monitoring solutions providers. The day of talks will be held alongside a technology exhibition for networking.

About the ISP Series: The ISP events have been the highlight of the Sensors & Instrumentation calendar since the start of the Knowledge Transfer Networks in 2006 and the Faraday Partnerships that preceded them. The core strength of the ISP events is that they aim to showcase new sensing technologies irrespective of their core target markets. This focus on exciting, novel technologies and their applications sits firmly with the Knowledge Transfer Network's aim of encouraging interactions, which otherwise would not happen.
