Advanced Fibre Composites – Issues and Challenges
Fibre-reinforced polymer composites are widely used in today’s aerospace, green energy, marine, and transportation industries, because of their high specific strength and specific stiffness in comparison with those of conventional materials. Over years, significant advances have been made to substantially enhance performance of composites by enhancing the properties of fibres and matrices and by optimising interfaces between them. In recent years, nano-scale reinforcements have been used to further enhance properties of composites, and the multi-functionality (e.g. self-sensing and self-healing) has attracted attention of many researchers in the areas. This talk highlights the development of advanced composites in the past half-century addressing the processing-structure-property relationship of composites. It also articulates some recent development of composite materials and structures with multi-functionality for self-sensing and self-healing addressing some key issues and challenges that face researchers.
Lin Ye currently is a full professor at the School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering and the Director of the Centre for Advanced Materials Technology of The University of Sydney. He received his BEng degree from Harbin Engineering University in 1982, and MEng in 1984 and PhD in 1987 from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics. He then joined the Xi’an Jiaotong University as a Lecturer in early 1988. He joined The University of Sydney in July 1992 after working as an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow at the Institute for Composite Materials (IVW GmbH) 1990-1992. His major research interests are in the areas of composites science and technology, smart materials and structures, nano-materials and nano-composites, structural integrity and durability. He was elected a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Engineering and Technology (ATSE) in 2005.
