The conference will be held in French. It will focus on the recycling of composite materials:

The understanding of composite materials and their structures requires an in-depth knowledge of basic material behaviour. Knowledge of fibre and resin behaviour is essential for understanding the intricacies of composite manufacturing processes. This must be accompanied by stress, strain and failure analysis in both the static and fatigue regimes. Finally, designs must be manufactured and tested. Here is where design optimization helps to achieve the final goal: a successfully designed composite structure. The McGill Structures and Composite Materials Laboratory thus explores the design of composite materials and their structures "From Start to Finish". Emphasis now is on sustainability and recycling of composites.
