Welcome to the HiPerDuCT research project. HiPerDuCT stands for ‘High Performance Ductile Composite Technology’. We are exploring various strategies for making composite materials like carbon fibre more ductile. We are based at the University of Bristol in Bristol Composites Institute (ACCIS) and the Composites Centre at Imperial College London.

Are you a member of the public? We’ve got information and resources here that you won’t need a PhD to understand!
