Research project(s)

The use of optical techniques to assess the performance of composite materials under high velocity deformations

Analysis of adhesively-bonded composite joints

Improvements to experimental approach for application of optical methods to high-speed testing of composites

An investigation into the face sheet debonding of glass balsa sandwich composites

Applications of thermography for material and structures monitoring and assessment

Digital image correlation for high strain rate behaviour investigation on glass fibre reinforced polymers

Potential for evaluating residual stress using thermoelastic stress analysis

A new tool to identify defects in adhesively bonded joints

Thermal degradation of foam cored sandwich structures

Imaging the mechanical properties of welds

Welding is a very important industrial joining technique.

Novel Integrated Imaging Approaches for Damage Characterisation of Composite Materials and Structures

The project aims at developing an idea known as ‘Strain-based NDE’. Here full field imaging techniques are used to capture data that is directly related to the strain caused by the damage to provide prognostic information on the effect of damage in composite materials.

  • Associate Dean for Infrastructure
