Advanced Composites Research Focused Group (CRFG)

Advanced Composites Research Research Group is part of the Aeronautics & Aerospace Research Centre in the School of Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering at City, University of London based in Northampton Square in London, UK.

The research group is focused on multi-disciplinary research, innovation and enterprise activities mapped across different technology readiness levels (TRL1-6), multi-material and multi-scale pioneering approaches for design, manufacturing, joining, sensing and structural integrity assessment of advanced and futuristic polymer composite materials and structures. The group is comprised of academic and research staffs, post-docs, students, lab technicians and industrial partners.
