IOP Business + Innovation Awards 2017
MP Alok Sharma and the Institute of Physics invited EATEC Dynamics and Chris Higham to attend the IOP Business and Innovation Awards 2017. The prestigious event was held at the Palace of Westminster. Awards acknowledged the winners’ novel physics based solutions and contribution to the UK economy.
Of special interest was the innovative use, by one award winner, of seismic airguns (causing controlled underwater shock waves) to test ship hulls and components against the potential of shock failure from an underwater explosion.
