The leader of AIRPOXY Work Package 4, Composite and Smart Materials Lab (CSML) of the University of Ioannina, started the first experiments on the Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of the novel 3R composites and the development of the 3R-repair technologies. Here is a sneak peek at their testing laboratory.
