Dr Rachel Tomlinson, Department of Mechanical Engineering

We have been working with Solvay Composites to develop experimental mechanics tools to gain a focused understanding of the damage mechanisms of Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer composites. These capabilities, and the understanding gained, are being used to aid customers’ design and usage of composites, and to help the company formulate improved systems for next-generation applications in the aerospace and automotive industries.
