Designing Against Deformation & Fracture of Composite Materials:
Engineering For Integrity Large Composite Structures (DFC-12/SI-6)

8th-11th April 2013

Welcome to the website of DFC-12/SI-6. An international forum of distinguished engineers and scientists will present papers that address a number of problems, including:

  • deformation, cracking, and fracture of composite materials,
  • structural integrity of large engineering composite structures.
  • formulation of scientific argument to support and enhance structural integrity
  • safe operating development of structural life management strategies of predictive design methodologies.

Participants across a variety of academic and industrial fields, active in developing and refining experimental, analytical and modelling methods of composite material and component behaviour, and those charged with their engineering application are invited to submit an Abstract.
