CRC-ACS recognition

23 May 2014

At the Cooperative Research Centres Association Annual Conference in Perth in late May, the work of the CRC for Advanced Composite Structures (CRC-ACS) was recognised with two prestigious awards.

The CRC-ACS team for the project Deep Water Composites received an Award for Excellence in Innovation for its work on the development of a novel composite clamp for pipeline repair. The project, also recognised at this year’s JEC Europe innovation awards, is a partnership with Pacific Engineering Systems International, PETRONAS Research (Malaysia), Supacat, Newcastle University (UK), University of Southern Queensland, and Merit Technologies (Malaysia).

Current University of Queensland PhD student, Mr Luigi Vandi, was judged the best presenter in the Early Career Researcher Showcase in which 48 candidates and five finalists ach candidate submitting a 30-second video explaining the key aspects of their research.

Luigi's presentation on understanding interphase formation in thermoset composite welding, is key to the work being undertaken in the CRC-ACS materials and manufacturing projects for next-generation assembly of composites for aircraft structures. You can view Luigi's presentation on Youtube here
