Centre for Advanced Composite Materials

Our research

Our main goal is to bring together the complementary research capabilities of the University of Auckland and its partners in order to conduct research into advanced composite materials and manufacturing processes.


  • Novel materials

    Research into novel materials, including micro- and nano-fibrillar composites and high performance biocomposites.

  • Advanced manufacturing

    Research into processes such as liquid composite moulding, formability and roll-forming, biocomposite manufacture, machinability and rotomoulding.

  • Composite performance

    Analysis and experimental characterization of performance, including failure prediction, dynamic loading effects, product design and applications.
