The 6th Global Conference on Polymer and Composite Materials (PCM 2019)
Keynote Speakers
Prof. Esteban Broitman, SKF Research & Technology Development, 3430 DT Nieuwegein, The Netherlands

Esteban Broitman holds a Ph.D. degree in Physics from the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina), and a Docent degree in Tribology from Linköping University (Sweden). He has been doing research and teaching at the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina), The College of William and Mary (USA), Carnegie Mellon University (USA), Linköping University (Sweden), and has been invited Professor by the University of Sao Pablo (Brazil), and by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (China). His research activities focus on the nanomechanical and nanotribological properties of hard coatings of carbon-based coatings, nanocomposites, and softer materials like soft metals and polymers.
Speech Title: The Characterization of Polymers and Composite Materials by Nanoindentation: A Critical Overview
Abstract: During the last decade, novel polymers and nanocomposite materials have been developed for applications as micro- and nanodevices. In these applications, conventional mechanical characterization techniques like tensile, compression and bending tests are inapplicable due to the size of the samples. Nanoindentation technique, widely used to characterize the mechanical properties of hard metals and ceramics has started to be used also to characterize polymers and composite materials. More...

Prof. Peter W R Beaumont, Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge, UK

Peter Beaumont was assistant professor in the School of Engineering at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). He returned to England to take a position at the University of Cambridge. More...
Speech Title: Progress in the Micro-mechanics of Structural Composites
Abstract: Since the discovery and public announcement of carbon fibre 50 years ago, there has been a plethora of papers published in a growing number of journals on a variety of aspects of composite material systems and design methods of composite structures. But remarkably few (in percentage terms) have provided indepth insight of composite material behaviour over a spectrum of industrial applications and public sectors. More...
