Equipment and facilities

At the heart of our vision for innovation in advanced composites is the provision of first rate experimental facilities in which ideas and novel concepts can be developed, tested and proven. Within the Engineering Faculty there has recently been a major investment in new, state of the art laboratories to form the £18 million Bristol Laboratories for Advanced Dynamic Engineering (BLADE). ACCIS makes use of this world class infrastructure to house composites-specific equipment and additionally has access to the broader range of laboratory equipment as and when required. Further facilities are available in other faculties across the University of Bristol.
