Research themes


We develop novel generations of composites with a broad range of multiscale reinforcements, from nanostructures to carbon and natural fibres, involving design, modelling, manufacturing and testing.


Our research into the mechanical performance of composites encompasses novel numerical methods, novel structural configurations, advanced analysis techniques, multi-functionality and data rich experimentation.

Manufacturing & Design

Our research centres around Design for Manufacture, from novel material forms that facilitate forming, through detailed process understanding and novel machines to factory operations.
