The Mechanical and Failure Analysis research theme aims to characterise anisotropic material properties of our manufactured composites in the elastic and in-elastic regions.
Activities include mechanical testing of composite materials and constituents to support our simulation activities and measurement and prediction of different failure modes. Prof Shuguang Li was one of the research team in the well-known World-Wide-Failure Exercise activity.
We have a well-founded mechanical testing laboratory including the following equipment:
The University of Nottingham is developing a new University Innovation Centre (UIC) with one of China’s biggest aerospace businesses.
Under the agreement with ACAE (AVIC Commercial Aircraft Engine Company Limited) the University, will, over the next three years, undertake a number of civil aerospace research projects in the UIC.
