University of Bristol, UK to the University of British Columbia (UBC), Canada – April 2019. A study into high speed impact on composites to simulate bird strike events will be undertaken. UBC has specialised delivery and measurement capabilities within their Composite Research Network (CRN) facility.
University of Edinburgh, UK to the University of Auckland, NZ – July 2019. An investigation into the impact behaviour of carbon fibre reinforced thermoplastic composites will be undertaken. Equipment within the Centre for Advanced Composite Materials (CACM) including high speed camera recording of impact will permit a detailed study into damage initiation and progression.
University of Southampton, UK to the Defence Science and Technology (DST), Melbourne, Australia – Date to be Confirmed. Characterisation of damage using a strain-based, non-destructive evaluation approach will be undertaken on composite structures. The DST incorporates an integrated Thermoelastic Stress Analysis and Digital Image Correlation.
