Project #7 @ECCM17 Conference

Future Sky Safety’s P7 “Mitigating the risk of fire, smoke & fumes” will participate in the 17th European Conference for Composite Materials (ECCM17) to be held in Munich (Germany) from June 26th to 30th, 2016.

The conference is organised by the Institute for Carbon Composites of the Technische Universität München (TUM) and the Leading-Edge Cluster MAI Carbon, under the patronage of the European Society for Composite Materials (ESCM).
ECCM is Europe‘s leading conference on composite materials and will attract internationally renowned scientists and engineers in the field of aerospace, automotive and mechanical engineering and will bring together the scientific and the application-oriented world.
An attractive background programme will complement the presentations and discussions, covering a wide scope of topics in composite technologies including Materials Science, Material and Structural Behavior, Experimental Techniques and Recycling and Sustainability.

P7 will contribute to Topic 2 Materials Science, specifically during session 2.12 “Lightning Strike – Fire Behavior and Fire Retardancy or Fire Resistance of Composites”. The project will present 3 papers in this mini-symposium, dealing with:

  • the experimental characterisation of the mechanical properties of composite materials under high temperatures,
  • the influence of number, weight and stacking sequence of metal layers on the fire properties of hybrid CFRP‐metal composites,
  • and the investigation of temperature dependent material behavior for thermo-mechanical analysis of composites.

In addition, the P7 scientific manager will give a short speech about Future Sky Safety projects and global objectives of the P7.
