Abstract : The Midwest Structural Sciences Center is a collaboration between the Structural Sciences Center, Aerospace Systems Directorate of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL/RQHF SSC), and a team of faculty, graduate students, and professional staff researchers of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UI), Wright State University, University of Cincinnati, and the University of Texas at San Antonio. The team works closely to simulate, model and test structures and materials for use in future air-and space-vehicles in a risk quantified design process.
