Next E-LASS event to take place on 27 and 28 January

January 27-28, 2021 · Event

The next E-LASS (European Network for Lightweight Applications at Sea) event will take place on 27 and 28 January 2021. It is organized in collaboration with RAMSSES partner Naval Group in Nantes, France and will be executed digitally.

The program includes presentations on lightweight applications (first day) as well as manufacturing and industrial process methods (second day).

Speaker Patrice Vinot will present results from RAMSSES on manufacturing a ½ scale hollow propeller blade with WAMM process and how 3D printing of propellers could impact ship building industry in the future. Further presentations are planned, among others covering Composite fluid structure interaction, Lightweight composite superstructure colossus, additive FRP composite production as well as fibre composite manufacturing technologies for automation and modular construction in shipyards.

A preliminary agenda can be found at the E-LASS website:

Participation is free of charge.
