How carbon composites are revolutionizing our world !
In order to safeguard their competitiveness, more and more industries have incorporated a growing volume of carbon fibre-reinforced composites into their products.
Those materials, which combine unparalleled stiffness and strength with a low density, have moved up from the status of small-scale laboratory products to the one of ideal materials for heavily loaded but lightweight structures.
Apart from space and military applications, four main industrial sectors have up to now been concerned with their use :
Will this trend go on ? With the emergence of new types of carbon reinforcements, namely graphene and carbon nanotubes, we may reasonably expect that it will be the case.
This colloquium intends to give you a state-of-the-art insight in the most recent developments and prospects in that field, thanks to high level specialists from European academia and world industry.
The event will take place on 18 November 2015, in Brussels, Belgium.
