Composite Conference 2012 brings together NASA and other U.S. federal agencies, the composites industry, and the international community for discussion of significant advances in the performance, durability and safety of composite pressurized structures and vessels (CPS&V). The conference will be held August 13-17, 2012 in Las Cruces, New Mexico, and is hosted by the Materials Knowledge Foundation and NASA White Sands Test Facility.
The exponential growth of CPS&V use is critical for enabling NASA’s current and future missions. This new technology introduces greater complexity requiring innovative test and evaluation techniques to reduce costs, making collaboration and coordination necessary for the composite paradigm shift.
The 2012 conference will focus on:
Accelerating knowledge of composites and state-of-the-art development
Methodologies for CPS&V evaluation through life
Approaches for NDE technology implementation
Global growth and competition
