The section ‘Advanced Composites and Applications’ will be organized by the Institute for Mechanics of Materials of the University of Latvia (LU MMI) on 15.02.2022 as a part of the annual 80th scientific conference of the University of Latvia. It will be organized remotely in Zoom. The official language of the section is English. The duration of the presentation should be 10-15 minutes.

The section will be devoted to the discussion of the recent results within following topics: 

-structure and properties of polymers and polymer-based composites; 

-long-term properties, creep, and environmental ageing; 

-composites for advanced applications; 

-mechanical aspects of technology;

-multifunctional properties.

Please follow the guidelines provided in  the template for the abstract (see below). The abstract should be sent to tatjana.glaskova-kuzmina@lu.lv until February 1.
