  3. 3. Edito C omposite materials have rapidly become a mainstream technology and material of choice within many industries, from aerospace to wind energy. And today, environmental regulations act as a new innovative driver for a paradigm shift in the composite market. Replacing metals by composites is fundamentally environmentally responsible. In land transportation lightweight composite structures have a big role to play in reducing both the use of petrochemicals and CO2 emissions. Demand for more composite applications keeps on increasing. Now is the time for Add to this the fact that low-weight carbon fibre structures Eco composites reach the ends of their service lives, and it then becomes obvious that Recycling and Life Cycle Management is now a key eco challenge. This is why JEC launches in 2010 its first observance forum on this subject. Bio-based fibres and resins derived from natural, renewable sources have also increasingly received significant interest in recent years due to increased environmental awareness, concern about the depletion of non-renewable resources and the insta- bility in oil prices. In the 2010 forum, you will discover more and more significant innovations in particular in transportation, architecture and sports & leisure. © P. Wartenweiler, Mäder Composites Another main topic at the 2010 JEC Conferences and Forums pro- gram, will be cost control and process automation. The tran- sition from metal parts to composite is an ongoing process but often labor intensive and therefore expensive. To exploit the full potential of composite materials for high performance lightweight structures, it is necessary to consider the entire process chain. Automation can bridge that gap for a long-term profitable serial production. Eco-design, along with cleaner and more eco-efficient processes, highly auto- mated manufacturing techniques, weight reduction, lower production costs… The JEC 2010 Conferences and Forums program will help you gain insight on major market drivers and new energy-saving strategies for composites. We look forward to meeting you at JEC Composites Show Paris. Martine Vesco JEC Forums and Conferences Manager 3
  4. 4.

Come and discover how Audi, Lamborghi- Cost-effective and lightweight ni, Nissan, Toyota Motor Corporation rely on composite to meet the most stringent materials and processes environmental regulations. Constructors experiences: Audi, Lamborghini, Nissan, Toyota Motor Corporation CONSTRUCTION AND CIVIL ENGINEERING Efficient seismic solutions Designers in Construction and Civil Engineering are getting better and better at Reinforcements for tunnels integrating all the potential of composites. Composites address very utilitarian and building needs, notably for earthquake risks. They serve just as well in new constructions, Case studies: spectacular applications in renovation and rehabilitation. In civil engineering, new modular and lightwei- ght bridges, that can be assembled and disassembled manually on site, will be presented. MARINE New solutions as part of the industry Given the opportunities for further expansion, the marine industry represents recovery a highly attractive market for OEMs, material suppliers, engine suppliers and part Comparative studies of materials suppliers. Resin and reinforcement producers constantly improve their products to Solutions for quality improvement achieve better strength, fatigue properties, surface quality, lighter products as well Thermoplastic penetration in Marine as cheaper and healthier manufacturing processes. RAIL AND ROAD TRANSPORTATION Green and thermoplastic solutions Reducing the environmental footprint of terrestrial vehicles is the roadmap of the Agro vehicles innovative cluster I-Trans. In Rail and Road Transportation, composites are in- Low CO² emissions creasingly used since they have the advantages of strength, durability and corro- sion resistance together with low weight. This increases the potential useful load and also helps to save on energy. A new urban collective vehicle, a monocoque trailer made of carbon composite, a modular bus body and composite cylinders for automobile and gas transportation, all reap the benefit of the high properties of composites. WIND ENERGY The Global World Energy Council Wind energy growth demands more and more blades being manufactured. At the market vision same time, wind turbines produce more and more power, which means that the Automation: better quality at lower blades grow larger and larger. Robustness of the design and the manufacturing costs processes is becoming more and more critical. Increasing competition forces ma- nufacturers to increase their throughput while reducing their manufacturing costs. This forum will demonstrate what wind energy companies can learn from aerospace composites best practices and how to maximize the efficiency and the robustness of the manufacturing process by introducing automation. 4
  5. 5. RECYCLING AND LIFE CYCLE MANAGEMENT Recycling processes and applications JEC launches the first observance forum on Recycling and Life Cycle Management Life Cycle Management (LCM). Long-fibre, high-grade carbon is a valuable commodity, costing upwards Economical and Ecological benefits of £10,000 per ton when new. Add to this fact that consumption is increasing, offering competitively priced material having minimally impaired mechanical pro- perties and good surface chemistry is key. Do not miss this forum! This is a unique opportunity to compare European and Japanese LCM-strategies for carbon fibre composite aircraft and cars. You will network with all actors: universities, industry and reclaimers. BIO-BASED MATERIALS A booming market With the demand for safer and healthier products enabled by strict environmental Green materials advances regulations, there is a growing need for Bio-based materials. Different aspects give Innovative case studies: 3XN architect, the grounds for the choice of these materials: from an environmental, technical Decathon/Artengo, NPSP and economical point of view. The forum will highlight different innovations case studies and applications in construction, sports and leisure and transportation. AUTOMATION Automation through new materials, Automation is key for reducing the cost of manufacturing composites parts. Europe processes and equipments has the highest rate of automation with 83% of its processes automated. A Trends for the future market overview of the Automotive, Aerospace and Wind Energy requirements for automation will be presented. You will also learn about the most promising tech- nologies and successful examples. COMPOSITES DESIGN Opportunities for composites design Stephen W.

In this forum, Case study: a wing assembly a case study (composite wing assembly) will enable to introduce to the numerous challenges of MPS. Then, the presentations will demonstrate the benefits of using the numerical simulation of manufacturing. The forum will cover the underneath material modeling and how to use it in simulation like for instance fan blades RTM manufacturing for an aircraft engine.

No single Research projects: key aerospace process step can be optimized without taking into account the impact to preceding players testimonials: Airbus, Eurocopter, and subsequent steps. The integration of additional functions into the load carrying Premium Aerotec structure offers further advantages of composite technology. Some examples from actual research shall illustrate the potentials and challenges in the composite development process. 5
