Organisation profile

The Composites UTC is a research centre supported by Rolls-Royce plc to provide a validated analysis capability for the mechanical response of composites that can be used to design composite components.It aims to act as a focus for composites research activities, liaising with other universities to provide a coordinated programme to meet the needs of Rolls-Royce. A series of case studies are given below to give examples of the type of work that the UTC is involved in.

The Research outputs displayed in the above tab showcases the work of our UTC members. Click here if you would like to view only UTC derived publications.
