Research collaboration between Korean Institute of Construction Technology (KICT), South Korea, Swansea University, UK & IC2E, Rhodes, Greece
Korean Institute of Construction Technology (KICT), International Centre for Computational Engineering (IC2E) and Swansea University (SU), UK have recently signed an International Memorandum of Understanding (IMOU) for collaborative research on Non-destructive Evaluation and Characterization of Composite Materials (NECCM).
It is hoped that this research will establish the important role 3D X-ray Computer tomography in development, evaluation and increased use of high strength and highly durable carbon fibre based composites for the aviation industry.
The above collaboration is a result of Dr Hyu Shin (KICT), joining the Centre as a Distinguished Visitor for a period of one year (Feb. 2012 to Jan 2013) to collaborate with Professor Gyan Pande and other members of the Technical Committee of IC2E, to conduct a comprehensive survey of research trends in the field of convergence technologies in geotechnical engineering that incorporate condition monitoring, CT-imaging, numerical modelling and computational intelligence.
