Composite Repair for Plants Workshop 2010
Hosted at Stress Engineering on Wednesday, June 23, 2010
The Composite Repair for Plants Workshop was organized for operators of plants including refineries, chemical plants, and power plants to provide information on composite repair materials and how they are effectively being used in the process industry. Presentations were made by several operators with experience in using composite materials in plant environments, as well as four presentations from composite manufacturers that included case studies with real-world examples.
Another purpose in having the Composite Repair for Plants Workshop was to provide a forum where participants can ask questions about the current composite repair technology and explore areas for further research. As a result of this forum, Stress Engineering is organizing a White Paper study that will include an industry-wide survey to gather information on how composite materials are used in plant environments.
Provided below are presentations that were made at the the Composite Repair for Plants Workshop by Stress Engineering and four of the composite manufacturers that were in attendance.
