Equipment and facilities

Bristol Composites Institute has world class experimental lab facilities within the Queen’s Building at the University of Bristol enabling cutting edge research in advanced composite development, manufacturing and testing. The Faculty of Engineering laboratories house a wide range of composites-specific equipment, with additional large scale equipment (including a highly instrumented research autoclave and a CT scanner) located at the National Composites Centre. In 2012 it benefitted from a £3.1m EPSRC grant for equipment for advanced materials research and in 2014 from a £700k EPSRC grant for equipment for the Centre for Doctoral Training and Industrial Doctorate Centre. A dedicated technical support team provides experimental assistance and equipment training for members of the Institute carrying out research in the labs.
