COST Action CA18120

About the Action

This Action will tackle the scientific challenges in the different stages of the life-cycle of a bonded structure through the synergy of multi-disciplinary fields and knowledge transfer.

Bonded structures deal with very distinct fields, such as materials science, surface science, physics and structural mechanics. Nevertheless, in order to achieve industrial progress, an interdisciplinary approach has to be adopted in order to address the challenges of this topic. CertBond Cost action brings together experts in those different fields aiming to enable the implementation of composite bonded joints in primary structures.
