AMADE’s Testing Lab was audited again for the existing Nadcap scope. There were no findings and while fulfilling also other criteria defined in the Nadcap merit program, AMADE achieved the extension of accreditation length until 24 months. Nadcap is
AMADE has been certified to ISO9001 for several years, but up until now to the 2008 version of the standard. In the annual audit, the system was audited for the first time to the 2015 version of the standard. This certification audit confirmed the su
Mohamed Emara, who has developed his PhD research within the AMADE group has just presented his PhD disertation where he discusses the results of two experimental campaigns designed to characterize the behavior of Near-Surface Mounted (NSM) concrete
The paper Low velocity impact and compression after impact simulation of thin ply laminates by Soto et al., published in the 109 issue of the Composites Part A journal describes how a new methodology to perform LVI and CAI numerical tests has been pr
