Latest research at the 22nd International Conference on Composite Materials

TU Delft’s Aerospace Manufacturing Technologies Group and its partners present latest research at the 22nd International Conference on Composite Materials, 11 - 16 August 2019, in Melbourne, Australia

ICCM is the premier international conference in the field of composite materials, and covers polymer matrix composites, metal matrix composites, ceramic matrix composites, natural fibre composites, fibre metal laminates, fibres and resins and all the other classes of composites. The aerospace manufacturing technologies group and its partners present latest research on materials, processing and manufacturing processes.

In session 1102 green & natural fibre composites, on Monday, Aug 12th 2019 at 12:00

Continuous ultrasonic welding is a new promising high-speed joining technique for thermoplastic composites. This study aims at relating the optimum welding time in static welding to the continuous welding speed.

In session 4101 Nano-composites, on Thursday, Aug 15th 2019 at 12:20
NANOENGINEERING OF FIBRE SURFACE FOR CARBON FIBRE-CARBON NANOTUBE HIERARCHICAL COMPOSITES Wojciech Szmyt1, Michel Calame2, Celestino Padeste3, Clemens Dransfeld4
