Dr Ingham has particular knowledge is in the mechanisms by which pipe grade materials develop toughness and the failure analysis of PVC/ PE pipelines, PE welds (butt fusion and electrofusion) and plastic components.
He is involved in conducting research into developments with new materials and providing solutions and consultancy for existing problems to the Water, Gas and Mining Industries. In addition to this he has assisted with the development of a various UK standards for plastic pipes and represents the Water Industry on two standards committees concerning PE pipes and test methods for plastic pipes.
