Dr Fabienne Touchard, ISAE-ENSMA (France) and Dr Fabrizio Sarasini, Sapienza-Università di Roma are organizing a Session on the “Dynamic behaviour of green composites”.
Global awareness of environmental issues has resulted in the emergence of “green” composites. These new materials offer eco-friendly and sustainable alternatives to classical synthetic composites, such as glass fibre reinforced polymer materials. They have a lower carbon footprint and they already constitute attractive substitutes for semi-structural applications. However, their dynamic behaviour has received little coverage in the available literature. Potential topics include: low and high velocity impact of natural fibre composites and sandwich structures, crash tests, high strain rate mechanical characterization, fatigue and cyclic behavior, laser shocks, NDT for damage analysis.
