About the presenters

Nicolas Capelle, Composite Process Engineer & Material Data Management Specialist Nicolas Capelle, Composite Process Engineer and Material Data Management Specialist within the Materials and Processes Laboratory at EUROCOPTER, joined the company as an engineer in charge of composites repair on helicopters structure in 2008, directly after completing his diploma. Now, he is the project manager for Granta deployment for Mechanical Data at EUROCOPTER and the focal point for EADS harmonization. He provides all material recommended values for the Structural and Dynamic Design Office. Nicolas is also involved in composite materials developments for implementation on new helicopters.
Dr. Will Marsden, Product Director for Aerospace, Defense & Energy at Granta Design Dr. Will Marsden, Product Director for Aerospace, Defense & Energy at Granta Design, began his career within the aerospace materials community as a Rolls-Royce research engineer in 1989. At post-doctorate level, he specialized in material model formulations that describe composite damage mechanisms within finite element codes. He continued work in this area at DERA, the research agency of the UK Ministry of Defense, and then managed the composites group for a commercial provider of finite element software. Will joined Granta in 2001, since when he has been responsible for products that support the aerospace, defense, and energy sectors. He has coordinated the work of the Material Data Management Consortium (MDMC), an industry collaboration that helps to define and implement best practice. Will has a BSc in Materials Engineering and PhD in composites fracture mechanics from the University of Surrey.
