Work in progress for testing

Several teams involved at NLR , University of Bristol and NCC are actively contributing to feed the impressive baseline looked at in D-STANDART for a disruptive change in fatigue characterisation of composites material.

For instance in November, Hanna Beketova (University of Bristol) and Edward Jones (National Composites Centre) layed up some of the induced defects (namely out-of-plane wrinkling) specimens at the Bristol Composites Institute.

A lot of experiments will be still required to meet our goals and ensure a robust validation of D-STANDART concept. These activities will run until end of 2024.
