Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Advanced materials and structures are key priorities in both the Defence Technology Strategy and the UK aerospace strategy. Development and exploitation of advanced materials and composite technology underpins many aspects of the design, development and manufacture of the civil and military platforms and equipment, and the MoD has stated that it will ensure its capability to exploit new materials and approaches to structural design. This presentation focused on composites and the industry/university interface.
