Composites in Fire 6

United Kingdom, Newcastle







The 6th international conference on Composites in Fire will take place in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK from 9 - 10 June 2011.

Sixth International Conference on Composites In Fire

The Composites in Fire conferences exist to transfer understanding, technology and research results from major programmes from three continents, Europe, USA and Australia, to industry.

Since CIF-5, which was held in 2008, substantial progress has taken place in testing and modelling the problem of the fire resistance of composite structures. There have also been important changes in the methods used to achieve low heat release and improved fire resistance. Important research has also taken place to fairly compare the fire behaviour of composites with other lightweight construction materials, including aluminium.

It is the purpose of CIF-6 to report this progress and transfer the technologies and techniques developed to industry. The programme will include 'Fire Resistance and Fire Reaction in Composites: New Developments'; 'Technology Transfer: Marine and Aerospace'; 'Multi-Scale Modelling of Materials and Structures in Fire'; 'Materials Selection and Materials Comparisons'.
