Professor Ivana Partridge

Polymer composites : processing for high performance

Teaching: Academic Director of EPSRC Industrial Doctorate Centre (IDC) in Composites Manufacture, focussed on the National Composites Centre and embedded within EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Composites, CIMComp.  www.epsrc-cimc.ac.uk

Research: Through-the-thickness localised reinforcement of critical load-bearing composite structures, by processes of Z-pinning or tufting. Process monitoring and control during manufacture of epoxy/continuous fibre reinforced composites, with emphasis on effects ofresin flow and cure on manufacturing quality and part performance.
