The Advanced Composites Group is dedicated to both fundamental scientific and industrial oriented research in the area of polymeric and composite materials. Our research activities have the primary goal of determining structure – (re)processing – performance relationships and tailoring composite materials for specific requirements in engineering applications.
Our capabilities range from the micro to macro scale and cover experimental materials research as well as modelling. Our areas of inquiry include fibre reinforcement performance, single fibre interface testing, fibre recycling and regeneration, composite processing and testing and polymer aerogel composites.
ACG is pleased to announce that Ross Minty has successfully defended his thesis “The Influence of Matrix Stoichiometry on Interfacial Adhesion in Composites for Wind Turbine Applications”
Prof Jim Thomason presented the latest ACG results at the MACH conference in Annapolis, Maryland and the ACMA Composites Recycling Conference in Knoxville, Tennessee.
