Previous Funded Research Projects

Hierarchical fibre-reinforced composites with nano-engineered interfaces for multifunctional lightweight structures

Funding source: Royal Society
Start: 01-03-2019  /  End: 28-02-2020

The aim of this project is to develop a multifunctional composite with integrated damage sensing, de-icing, and electromagnetic (EM) absorption capabilities based on nano-engineered interfaces, with the emphasis on lightweight engineering structures. The tailored electrical properties are utilised for in-situ damage detection based on electrical sensing method, as well as the EM absorption and de-icing applications.

Other Research Projects

Multifunctional Carbon Fibre Composites

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have potential for a wide range of applications in the composite field. Their large aspect ratio, excellent conductivity, and ultra-high mechanical and thermal properties make them an outstanding candidate for multifunctional nanofillers in combination with carbon fibre reinforced plastics (CFRP). Thanks to their intrinsic multifunctionality, CNTs have ...
