Workshop; Cracks in composite structures: how to be in control?

The DACOMAT EU project present more damage tolerant and damage predictable low-cost composite materials. Welcome to presentations and discussions. By invitation only.


Golden Tulip CDG, Paris, France or virtual

Registration deadline

The workshops is by invitation only, and the target groups are academia and industry working in the following fields: composite production, application-oriented composites, glass fiber and fabric producers, wind blade, material manufacturers, interest in damage tolerance materials. 

The DACOMAT consortium has through the last four years developed materials and methods to foster development and deployment of damage tolerant and damage controlled composite materials and structures. In this workshop the major developments in the DACOMAT project and their possible exploitation will be presented and discussed. We invite experts and stakeholders from the whole composite value chain (materials, design, production, operation, lifetime management) to join this workshop to learn about our work and discuss further developments and requirements, to enable full realization and deployment of damage tolerant composite materials and structures. 

If you would like to join, please contact  or Jens Kjær Jørgensen

Considering the corona situation, the workshop could be changed to a virtual workshop. In case of a change, the participants will be contacted.
