Composite materials are nowadays extensively used in applications where outstanding mechanical properties are necessary together with significant weight savings. Their increased use presents new challenges to designers, especially in those applications where materials are subjected to dynamic loading and impact events.

This series of four free webinars aims at providing specialized engineers and researchers in the field with a rapid knowledge of the state-of-the art regarding dynamic behavior of structural composites, including mechanical characterization and advanced modelling techniques.

08/07/2020 12:00 – 13:00 hours CEST Performance priorities of composites for Dynamic Applications (Benjamin Russell, HEXCEL Composites)

15/07/2020 12:00 – 13:00 hours CEST Micromechanical modelling of the dynamic behavior of composites: the challenge of determining the constituents’ properties under impact loading (Mario Rueda, IMDEA Materials)

22/07/2020 12:00 – 13:00 hours CEST Damage assessment of composites subjected to impact loading (Federico Sket, IMDEA Materials)

29/07/2020 12:00 – 13:00 hours CEST Characterization of structural composites for modelling impact loading (Carlos González, IMDEA Materials)
