Advanced composite materials have wide ranging, proven applications in critical areas that provide unique characteristics to the product. For instance, only advanced composites meet the stringent requirements of rugged and lightweight demands of aerospace structural parts. The technology of advanced composites manufacture is continually evolving. While aerospace is the predominant market for advanced composites today, there is a great potential and future for these niche materials in automotive, electronics, sports, surface transportation, power generation and other general engineering industries. This fact motivates and drives us to focus on development and characterization of different class of innovative advanced composites materials for a host of engineering applications. Emphasis will be to address the existing Challenges and issues in Manufacturing of Composite Products.


OBJECTIVES

  • To address the current Challenges and Issues in Advanced Composites Technology
  • To Foster and strengthen the industry interactions in the area of Advanced Composites
  • To develop innovative processes in achieving low cost high quality Advanced Composites
