Call for Papers: Fibre- Reinforced Polymer Composites in Mass Transport Applications

NetComposites is looking for papers on the subject of mass transport applications to be submitted for an event to be held on 1st October 2014 at The Roundhouse, Derby, UK.

The aim of the event is to look at key innovations in using FRP’s in mass transport applications, and the challenges that are still to be addressed.

Papers are invited on the subject of mass transport applications. Topics include:

  • Innovative materials and component design
  • Applications where composites are currently offering a solution to changes in legislation and performance requirements
  • Light weighting
  • Crashworthiness
  • Joining and Repair
  • Cost considerations
  • Examples of good practice
  • Novel applications of FRP composites in transportation 

Please send a short abstract (250 words max.) to no later than Friday 4th July 2014.

Abstracts on other related topics will be considered.
