The winners of the 2018 Uncover Copper schools poster competition have been announced after lead judge, Association for Science Education’s Richard Needham, made his selection from the 700+ entries received from UK secondary schools.
Two leading trade associations have combined forces to offer tailored in-house technical workshops to those needing to better understand the behaviour of copper-based alloys, stainless steels and nickel alloys in marine environments.
Mark joined Copper Development Association (CDA) in 2007 as a Technical Consultant, with 20 years’ experience in the non-ferrous metals industry. He quickly adapted to his new role of providing impartial, non-commercial information on copper and copper alloys, drawing on his wealth of commercial experience.
More than 100 participants from all over the world were testament to the successful launch and the future establishment of Copper Alloys as a biennial conference providing a forum for the exchange of expertise on copper materials.
Copper and the Home is a competition that challenges the minds of young designers, architects, engineers and students from all over the world to explore and harness the properties of copper, highlighting the beauty and versatility of a fascinating, multifaceted material, which can add both aesthetic and technical value to the most daring projects.
The Maersk Tower research complex in Copenhagen, designed by C.F. Møller Architects and characterised by its grid of copper fins, was the outright winner by a unanimous judges’ decision.
Is it feasible to power European industry fully with renewable energy? From the perspective of the copper industry, we present some of the challenges to be faced, and opportunities to be seized, for this scenario to come to fruition.
CDA will make an invited presentation—Metals in Marine Environments: Corrosion Behaviour and How to Spot It—to the International Institute of Marine Surveying at this year’s Seawork International Show and Conference, with a focus on the strong contribution copper alloys can make to marine engineering.
The development of copper alloys—from traditional applications to state-of-the-art engineering—will be described in a symposium at NACE International’s Corrosion 2017.
A free-to-access Copper Conductivity Materials database covering copper alloys for electrical conductivity applications is now available online to help specifiers and designers with material selection, addressing a current knowledge gap.
