The main theme of this symposium will be "Multimaterials design and characterization for lightweight structures including composite parts" which will be held at Technocampus EMC2, Nantes, France from November, 4th to 6th, 2013.
Recently, weight reductions in many industrial sectors as transportation have been paid much attention from the environmentally-friendly point of view. Application of polymer-matrix composites as structural parts is expected to be one of the key-technologies. However, there are many technical issues which have to be solved for their implementation. If many of them are linked to the choice and the manufacturing of the materials themselves, a more accurate problem is linked to their use as parts of assemblies. A single type material for a given structure is rarely realistic according to the principal stress and the different function of the structure. Moreover in parallel to the demand of a wider application of composites, arises sooner or later the question of their assembly with other materials.
This challenge will be discussed during this Euro-Japanese Symposium
The symposium will be single session type over two days including
4 keynote lectures and about 30 oral presentations
The following topics will be treate:
For each topic the following sub-topics will be analyze:
