Skoltech researchers have investigated a promising type of composite materials in terms of their shape memory behavior: how they resume their original shape following deformation if exposed to the right temperature or other conditions.
South Dakota State University assistant professor Anamika Prasad is making history.
Materials for aerospace applications face many challenges. The structure of an aircraft must be light yet strong.
Researchers at the Skoltech Center for Design, Manufacturing and Materials and their colleagues have developed and experimentally verified the model of a thermoplastic composite material chaotically reinforced by short glass fibers.
Researchers at the Georgia Tech Research Institute are developing a solid composite material to help cool small, powerful microelectronics used in defense systems.
As cities worldwide expand their networks of cycling paths and more cyclists take to the streets, the chances of cycling accidents and potential collisions increase as well, underscoring the need for proper cycling safety in dense urban areas.
Scientists at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois have developed a hydrogel integrated with zirconium-based robust metal-organic frameworks that rapidly degrades organophosphate-based nerve agents used in chemical warfare.
Changing climate patterns have left millions of people vulnerable to weather extremes.
Polymer composite materials that combine magnetic and electrical properties are the subjects of particular attention for modern-day researchers.
A collaborative partnership between Lockheed Martin, Australian manufacturer Omni Tanker and University of New South Wales (UNSW) will look to develop and commercialise world-first composite tank technologies, thanks to a grant from the Federal Government’s Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre (AMGC).
