A Proposal for the Establishment of a Center for Advanced Composite Materials Research
NATIONAL CENTER FOR COMPOSITE MATERIALS RESEARCH URBANA IL
Pagination or Media Count:
A key objective of the ONR-URI Center is to conduct basic research on critical materials science, mechanics, and structural problems currently confronting the Navy and to be encountered in its future use of advanced composite materials. The current emphasis of the Centers research thrust is placed on thick-section structural composites and composite structures, since these subjects have been identified as major potential problem areas of concern in the present and future high-performance Navy structural systems. The research program had three major thrusts, namely 1 Materials design and selection 2 Processing of thick filament would cylinders and 3 Mechanical behavior of thick section composites.
