Brainstorm Case Study

Award-Winning Case Study BRAIded Novel beam STructures with Opportunities in Railcar Manufacture (BRAINSTORM) 12th May 2020 Situation The cities that we live in are changing rapidly. Populations are growing and at the same time most cities are trying to reduce the number of private car journeys that people make. The result is pressure to install more public or shared transport and to innovate public transport to make it more suitable for the cities of the future. Solution Driven by the rail industry's challenges to industry known as the 4Cs - reduce Cost and Carbon emissions...

Fibreloop Kick-Off Upcycling waste carbon fibre into a high-performance injection moulding material 22nd of January 2020 Currently, the waste from weaving and processing carbon fibre (CF) has little value as there are few viable methods to re-use the materials and to utilise the still significant properties that remain in the fibres. At the same time a potentially huge benefactor of CF technology, the automotive industry, cannot viably use it due to the high cost of the material and the techniques used to mould it.  The project will utilise the reclamation techniques developed by...
