The Analysis Suite NEDF (New Design and Engineering Facility)

The University of Plymouth is making a 50M investment in a New Engineering and Design Facility (NEDF) with a comprehensive review of analytical capability. After polling all potential stakeholders across engineering and science in the university, the thermal analysis capability for materials characterisation has been identified as well below the national benchmark (limited to two ageing DSC, in composites and in food, and contracting out TPO/TPR). The consultation has identified that the thermal analysis suite would significantly enhance the student experience, could attract additional research funding, and would provide a resource for testing and consultancy for local commercial enterprises.
