PPRC hosts a training course on the "Mechanical Testing of Composites"

Composite Training Course June 19

PPRC recently underwent training on the "Mechanical Testing of Composites" with Dr Geraint Havard of R-Tech Materials using a selection of the test machines here in the Ashby Building. This course builds the current expertise in polymer and product mechanical testing the characterisation team have developed in house, now adding a range of standard composite mechanical tests to our capabilities.

We were very pleased to be joined on the day by Ross McClintock from Creative Composites and the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering's testing technicians.
