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 hybridization with thin plies and unsymmetrical designs”.   The main...

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 at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC)....

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 laminates and on enhancing the impact tolerance of the...

On September 7th , AMADE’s PhD student Albert Soto has very satisfactorily presented his PhD dissertation. This contribution is aimed at imporving the design of relatively large composite sub-components under the potential failure caused by low velocity impact (LVI) and subjected to Compression After Impact...

During the week of March 4th-8th, 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. Silvestre Pinho (Imperial College of London) and Dr. Julien Jumel (Université of Boudeaux). Dr. Pinho is...

7th ECCOMAS Thematic Conference on the Mechanical Response of Composites, Composites 2019, will be held at Girona between 18 and 20 of September. The main goal of Composites 2019 is the scientific investigation of complex mechanical behaviour of composite materials and structures. The conference focuses on...

The October ’18 issue of Composites Part A includes a contribution by S. García-Rodríguez et al. that compares the out-of-plane response of thin-plies with that of standard-ply samples. Damage initiation and propagation has been detailed using quasi-static indentation and impact tests at incremental energy levels,...
