BINDT Workshop 2023: NDT of composites through life

22-23 March 2023
Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), Poole, UK 

Following on from the previous successful composites events, we return to Poole, UK, where the RNLI will host BINDT's 2023 Composites Workshop, with the theme: 'NDT of Composites Through Life'.

This workshop will showcase NDT practices through all stages of the life of composite structures, bringing together industry specialists from a varied background of engineered components in a variety of industries, highlighting the NDT inspections that composite components undergo in the automotive, aerospace, motorsport, marine, construction, rail, nuclear and renewable energy industries.

The workshop will bring together various industrial specialists to present their solutions to the constraints/limitations they have overcome within their own businesses, which will help to generate new contacts within other industries to share best practice opportunities with the greater community within the world of composites.

Attendees will hear from industry leaders about how they work through difficult inspections through the life of composites to ensure that these components are inspected with the required coverage to satisfy that they continue to meet their design intent.

Topics covered in the two-day event will include design, raw materials, NDT at concept, manufacture, installation, inspection validation, standards, training, in-service inspection and repair, additive manufacture, end of life and re-use/recycling.
