Workshop: New findings in the field of material, technology, composite testing and application in the Czech aviation industry

On April 9, 2009, VZLU arranged a workshop on the topic “New findings in the field of material, technology, composite testing and application in the aviation industry of the Czech Republic”.

Composites and the aviation industry have always been and will be connected with a dynamic growth in all research, development and industrial sectors. Composites have made a big step forward in aeronautics in all aircraft categories recently, which is true of the Czech Republic too. The VZLU workshop program presented is already the fifth year in row on the topic: Composites in the aviation industry of CR.

Interesting themes have been worked on over the year. This year´s workshop topic concerns a broad spectrum, covering material, technology, testing and application. The point is to present new trends and show the results achieved in selected labs in the Czech Republic. Over the several past years, some important research programmes on composites and European Frame Programmes have been tackled in our country, which is also discussed in the workshops.

One day meeting at VZLU makes an important contact place bringing together experts from the Czech aeronautical industry, academics, national offices, CR army and Light Aircraft Association CR. The participants benefit from being informed on the current status and discussion on problems of interest.
