The UK and Ireland Chapter of the Society for the Advancement of Materials and Process Engineering (SAMPE), in collaboration with the British Composites Society (a division of IOM3), held their Annual Student Seminar on Tuesday 24 November 2009 at IOM3 HQ in London.

Ten students, representing nine universities, took part, each competing for one of two available places in the European Student Seminar to be held in Paris, April 2010.

Presentations ranged from raw materials (all-aramid composites, all-cellulose composites and coupling agents), through materials properties (natural fibre reinforcements, delamination, crack bridging and energy absorption) to manufacturing.

The two winners were:

Yusuf Mahadik (University of Bristol), for the Ed Trewin Prize, who presented ‘Characterisation and finite element modelling of 3D woven composite architecture’, and

Craig Smith (University of Birmingham), for the JEC Environmental Award, who presented ‘Reinventing the cardboard tube: production of filament wound tubes using recycled glass’

The reserve place for the Paris meeting was awarded to Luchoo Rajivsan (University of Nottingham), who presented ‘Automated net-shape deposition of discontinuous carbon/epoxy charges for structural applications’

Prospective contestants (primarily research degree candidates, but outstanding undergraduate projects are not excluded) for next years competition should contact Andrew Mills at Cranfield University.
