Aravind Sasikumar has achieved his PhD Degree July 18th in the conference hall of the Polytechnic School of the University of Girona after presenting his thesis “Improving compression after impact response of composite laminates through ply level hyb
Last 10th July, Dr. Gerard Guillamet, who did his PhD in AMADE, has been invited to our facilities to give a seminar on “Residual Strength and Structural Health monitoring using High Performance Computing”, a research he is currently developing
On June 28th , Santiago García has presented his PhD thesis in the conference hall of the Polytechnic School. This contribution has focused on understanding how ply-thickness affects the out-of-plane response of thin quasi-isotropic non-crimp fabric
It can be said that it is common wisdom that laminates must be symmetric. However, in some special cases, the use of unsymmetrical laminates can be of advantage when the load cases induce unevenly distributed stresses. This recent contribution by AMA
