Join the BGA Splines Special Interest Group.

If you are interested in joining this SIG please contact the BGA office on or call +44(0)191 208 6160 to register and receive the latest meeting minutes and schedules.

We have recently re-initiated the BGA Splines SIG activities to address both existing and new topics of interest within the BGA membership.

The initial focus for the group will build around defining small-scale student projects addressing splines in conjunction with the BGA supporting academic partners. We will also be reviewing the work of relevant BGA assigned projects completed within the last 18 months.

The Splines SIG will form a key input into the specification and steering of BGA spline research activities meaning participants will be direct beneficiaries of the resulting work.

Typical areas of Spline SIG interest include but are not limited to:

  • Spline Geometry
  • Spline Accuracy
  • Spline Stressing and Rating – Fixed and Flexible
  • Spline Joint Design
  • Spline Dynamics
  • Spline Manufacturing Influences/Methods

We held a virtual meeting on 4th April to:

  • Review previous activities of the SIG.
  • Agree the SIG structure for 2019.
  • Identify any new areas of focus.
  • Specify activity items.

The next virtual meeting will be held May 2019.
