Final Project Meeting in Patras

The Final Project Meeting will be held in the premises of the University of Patras in Greece, on the 12th and the 13th of April 2018.

Demonstration Days in Bremen

The consortium focuses in three main directions, namely the amelioration of the developed ENDT techniques in terms of accuracy and applicability, the development of numerical models and tools for predicting the effect of contamination scenarios to the fracture toughness and the organization (workflow and execution) of the Demonstration Days. In the framework of WP3 samples of high geometrical complexity as well as repair samples comprising several contamination scenarios were assessed utilizing the established ENDT methods.

ComBoNDT @ the 7th EASN International Conference (EASN 2017)

The ComBoNDT project is glad to announce its participation in the 7th EASN International Conference on “Innovation in European Aeronautics Research”, which will take place from 26 to 29 September 2017 at the modern Conference Centre of the Institute of Aviation in Warsaw, Poland. Over the years the EASN conference has been established as a major European Dissemination event.

ComBoNDT @ the September 2017 issue of the EASN Newsletter

ComBoNDT is currently in its third year of activities and several important milestones have been achieved so far. In regards to sample preparation, all the samples were investigated via conventional NDT inspection using two different probes and two different settings respectively. Also, all the mechanical testing, namely mode-I, mode-II and centrifuge tests were completed and the experimental results reveal the negative effect of each contamination scenario in the fracture toughness and adhesive strength of the composite bonds.

ComBoNDT @ the 11th International Workshop on Structural Health Monitoring (IWSHM)

The ComBoNDT project participated in the 11th International Workshop on Structural Health Monitoring (IWSHM) which took place from 12th to 14th of September 2017 at Stanford, California, USA making a presentation entitled "Study of adhesive bonds by mechanical tests, ultrasounds and electro-mechanical impedance method". The presentation deals with adhesive bonding of CFRP plates. Adhesive bonding of composites is considered as good alternative to riveting, provided that good tools are available to assess the bond quality after manufacturing and during the lifetime of structures.

M30 project progress meeting

The ComBoNDT M30 Progress Meeting will take place at the premises of the Institute of Aviation in Warsaw, Poland on the 29th of September 2017 within the frame of the 7th EASN International Conference on “Innovation in European Aeronautics Research”. During the 1-day meeting the consortium partners will have the chance to get prepared for the demonstration days of the project.

ComBoNDT @ the Paris International Airshow (Le Bourget Paris)

The ComBoNDT project is glad to announce its participation in the 52nd International Paris Air Show which will take place from 19 to 25 June 2017 at the Exhibition Center of Le Bourget, a few kilometers North of Paris, France.
