The University of Southern Queensland’s Centre for Future Materials (CFM) has received a major equipment grant of AU$250,000 to boost its test equipment portfolio in composites.

The funds were used to obtain a Simultaneous Thermal Analyser, large environmental chamber and a high temperature Hall effect measurement system.

CFM explains that Simultaneous Thermal Analysers combine differential temperature analysis with thermogravimetric capabilities. It measures glass transition, volatiles and thermal stability of composite materials.

Environmental chambers simulate different environmental conditions to assess the behaviour of materials exposed to temperature and moisture, while the high temperature Hall effect measurement system helps characterise thermal-electrical composites.

“This equipment builds upon the extensive equipment base at CFM to support planned projects across the aerospace, defence and civil composites sectors,” CFM Director, Professor Peter Schubel, said.

“The expansion of experimental and testing services capability complements the redevelopment of our 900sqm research laboratories which will be complete mid-2017.”

CFM operates a dedicated industry test service for more than 1000 business clients across multiple sectors both nationally and internationally. The popular testing, in compliance with national and international standards, ranges from materials characterisation, polymer analysis, mechanical testing and large scale structural testing.
