Aerospace Conference and Expo (Early-bird registration closes Friday, June 16 )

Composites are essential materials in aircraft construction, and we’ll be discussing the current state of design and analysis methods with Hexcel and Toray on Wednesday, Aug. 30.

Sanjay Sharma, Hexcel’s global leader of Advanced Modeling, will present on the company’s advanced composites research and development.  Hexcel is a global leader in advanced composites technology and supplies commercial aviation, space and defense, and industrial markets worldwide. The commercial aerospace industry is the largest user of Hexcel’s advanced composites, including the Airbus A350 XWB and Boeing 737 Max.

Toray’s Senior Research Scientist Jeff Satterwhite will discuss how the company’s high-performance carbon fiber products, some of which will be manufactured right here in South Carolina, are applied to the aerospace industry. Toray is the world’s largest producer of carbon fiber and is currently supplying prepreg carbon fiber for Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner and 777X.

Mehmet Yildiz, director of Sabanci University’s Composite Technologies Center of Excellence, and Zafer Gürdal, director of the University of South Carolina’s McNAIR Center for Aerospace Innovation and Research, will also participate in the discussion.
