AMADE group is happy to have had Ms. Carolina Furtado from the University of Porto performing a short experimental campaign in our facilities from 23-10-2017 to 4-11-2017 on the experimental determination of the crack resistance curves of thin-ply na
Magdalena Pérez greets us from the Empa, the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology. She has been working there for three months, among other things, on the implementation of an MMB test, on the test of wood adhesive joints a
During the week of March 5th-9th, and in the framework of the Master’s Mechanics of Materials and Structures we will receive the visit of two leading researchers on composites: Dr. Frederic Laurin (ONERA) and Dr. Giuseppe Catalanotti (Queen
AMADE has a brand new multifatigue test rig for the mode II and mixed mode testing of interlaminar fracture. As can be seen in the video, this test rig, similar to the one we have for mode I, allows the simultaneous testing of different specimens...
