Aeronautics (New challenges & opportunities in the aerospace industry)

 

  • Automated tools for next generation composite aircrafts
  • Composite intensive airframes, view on Airbus A350 XWB and Boeing B787 Dreamliner
  • New eco-friendly aircraft engine from an increasing use of advanced composite materials

 

As commercial aviation moves to use carbon fiber composites for the bulk of the primary structure, there is a need to increase production rate and reduce manufacturing costs. Traditional manual-intensive lay-up processes are no longer affordable for large scale production, and new out-of-autoclave as well as automated prepreg processes become standard. Automated lay-up, curing, machining, assembly, and finishing operations are becoming popular for mainstream production. These advances in aeronautics are also permeating into the automotive sector, which is particularly interested in high-volume processes and technologies. At the same time, to ensure the same level of safety as metallic aircraft for these large composite integral structures, it is necessary to develop new analytical capabilities and carefully validate them through testing. Through concurrent engineering, materials and manufacturing together with design, test and analysis can impart composite structures the competitive advantage over metallic structures.
 

Automotive (Composite materials: The solution for a large scale production)

 

  • Future materials on the way to large scale production
  • Eco-friendly, safety, lightweight & fuel saving
  • Process technologies in manufacturing & repairing of composites materials

 

The automotive industry like any other transportation industry is looking at ways to reduce weight and the raw material consumption, carbon footprint, petrol consumption, and to obtain longer range mostly for electrical vehicles. One way among different possibilities is to use more and more composite materials. However, the current available technologies linked to composite materials do not allow their use in automotive large series. Raw material cost is not only the biggest problem that has to be overcome. Cycle time, life cycle management, development & validation know-how, repairing and world-wide availability are also key points that have to be taken into account. The forum presents the new technologies developed to face a large scale production for composite parts with costs, Life Cycle Assessment, repairing comparable to metal and/or plastic injected parts.

 

Construction & Building (The adoption of composite technology: Stretch the imagination to construct a reality)

 

  • Unusual dimensions through an innovative challenge and project of rapid speed construction
  • Retrofitting of existing construction using externally bonded FRP composite - Applications & Challenges
  • Green building materials: Sustainable construction

 

Buildings are a market sector in need of more sustainable solutions - in both the construction process and the long term operational impact. Composite growth could benefit from bringing innovations to the buildings sector that address the global macro-trends of population growth, increasing energy consumption and climate change. Market needs and drivers are ever challenging both in terms of performance, sustainability and local customization. Composite solutions can definitively help on many aspects including: rapid urbanization and complex structures, long lasting and corrosion resistance materials, energy efficient buildings and the use of sustainable building materials.

 

Marine (Increasing performances & requirements of composite structure & materials)

 

  • High-performance composites designed for deep sea & racing applications
  • Tough conditions for new materials
  • The need of a mastered approach

 

Deeper, faster, stronger are definitely the keywords of this forum. During the last two decades, composite materials have offered the opportunity to develop underseas applications and racing yachts, where both stiffness and strength were the design criterias for light structures. The applications presented here result from a consistent effort to improve and optimize the use of composite materials. The development of materials is also underway, challenging some tricky limits like fire resistance or sustainability. This progress must go with rules to establish damage tolerance and safety, as aerospace industry had to settle many decades ago. But the marine environment can be much more severe, as yachts are designed to resist extreme unexpected and unpredictable loadings.
 

Railway (A new trend with composites: Weight reduction & fire protection efficiency)

 

  • Composite and lightweight material: Is a 100% composite based rolling stock realistic?
  • Lightweight material and fire safety issue: Impact of the new European standardization

 

As the expectations of rail operators and passengers continue to evolve, rail vehicle designers and manufacturers face more and more challenges. Some of the key issues are:
- Safety, both fire performance and crash worthiness
- Reduce running costs achievable by improved energy efficiency and particularly weight reduction
- Increased carrying capacity
- High speed travel
- Pan-European interoperability
This Rail Forum will focus on composites as a key candidate material for meeting these challenges, their cost, safety and fire performances and how the new European standard TS45545 impacts upon their current areas of application and future technical developments.
 

Wind Energy (Wind Turbine Blades: Design, construction and environmental effects)

 

  • Blade design and validation
  • Structural materials for wind turbine blades
  • Effects on wind farm operation

 

A key driver in the wind turbine industry is to reduce the cost of wind-derived electricity. A major element of this is to increase the length of turbine blades- 40-50m blades are now common, while designs are in place for over 80m. This put ever greater emphasis on the materials used in blade construction. Blade design and validation are becoming increasingly sophisticated. This has a major effect on the durability of materials in the field and on subsequent recycling.
 

3 Cross-Industry forums

 

Automation (Reduce cost, increase throughput and reduce scrap in composite part manufacturing)

 

  • Novative processes make thermoset and thermoplastic composites affordable for all markets
  • Automated Fiber Placement of thermoplastics and new fiber placement/stitching processes
  • Developments in the use of robots and overall composites industry trends in automation

 

 

Automation is progressively gaining ground within composites. Lowering the cost of automated machines and increasing their flexibility is key to allowing a wider range of companies and their products to reap the benefits of automation. In parallel, there is continued technical development in ways of accurately placing fibers where they need to be and of stabilizing their position via stitching if multi-axial fabrics are used. Coming from the robot industry, there are developments in the design and use of robots to increase composite process productivity. There are general trends in the way automation is used in composites manufacturing across many end use areas.

 

Eco Advantage Composites (Green opportunities with thermoplastic composites)

 

  • Production of intermediate materials
  • Processing of novel thermoplastic composites
  • Applications for thermoplastic composites

 

Composites are increasing market share and finding applications in ever more varied industries. With this expansion comes the need for responsibility and the need to compete on grounds of efficiency and customer advantage. Using alternatives such as Self Reinforced Polymer composites and thermoplastic-based composites brings opportunities for lighter weight, material reductions and a more targeted approach to using appropriate levels of performance in the areas needed. 
 

Multifunctional Composites (Multifunctionality of FRP)

 

  • Improved electrical properties of FRP
  • Superior tribological functions, high friction-resistance
  • Latest developments of integrated design solutions

 

Due to their superior mechanical performances, composites are contributing to energy efficiency and cost savings in many sectors. To increase the economic competitiveness of new composite applications versus other material solutions, it can be a key aspect to integrate additional functions, such as: electrical conductivity, high friction-resistance or advanced energy-absorption during crash events, to name just a few examples. In this forum, experts from industry and research will report on latest developments and achievements of multi-functional and integrated composite solutions.

Composites Design (innovations to increase toughness and reliability of Composites)

 

  • Totally new Non-Crimp Fiber tofacilitate design and manufacturing
  • Tools for every engineer to optimize structures

 

This conference brings together several truly world-class experts in composite materials from modeling of delamination to unmatched tools for preliminary design of blades and wings and uncertainty estimation. These methods and tools are applicable to composites structures in general and bi-angle NCF in particular. A totally new approach to designing and automated tape laying of structures with weight and cost reduction can be achieved with NCF that is receiving the attention of many forward-thinking designers. Meeting in person with these leading experts is a rare opportunity. This conference is unique in that tools are offered including the pioneering Composites App for iPad free to all interested participants.
 

Non Destructive Testing (New imaging and monitoring techniques for quality assessment of composites)

 

  • Non destructive imaging: Thermal, acoustical, xray computed tomography
  • Optical methods: Shearography, laser ultrasonics
  • Safety & maintainability of critical structures: Structural health monitoring, eddy current testing

 

The growth of composite application in mechanical industry creates a need for assessing the quality of the manufactured components. So, new adaptations of non destructive methods address this need. NDT is now present in various sectors as aircraft and aerospace industry, and transportation. Energy domain is concerned too, with piping and wind energy industry. Currently, NDT methods, mainly derived from medical and military applications, are subject to important evolutions, making them faster, easier to operate, and traceable. Today NDT allows production of images from the surface and volume defects, with improved sensitivity and easier interpretation. So, various applications are presented, as ultrasonic 2D imaging, 3D X-ray scanning and surface thermal infrared for near-surface testing. Methods as Structural Health Monitoring enabling global survey of the components through their life is also discussed.
