Stephen and Greg Spend Summer at Boeing Seattle as part of NSF GOALI Research
Students from our lab have been accepted to submit to the 58th AIAA/ASCE/AHS/ASC Structures, Structural Dynamics, and Materials Conference, AIAA Science and Technology Forum and Exposition 2017.
Since its birth in 1963, AIAA has taken it upon itself to put together conferences pertaining to the aerospace profession. The AIAA Science and Technology Forum and Exposition (AIAA SciTech) gives engineers, scientists, as well as technologists the chance to showcase and distribute their work and findings in the form of technical papers and poster sessions. The conferences present the opportunity for professionals to discover new technologies and advancements from other presenters and utilize their networking skills to further their own work.
The first paper outlines the recent work conducted on hybrid carbon fiber composites and highlights major findings about material and mechanical properties of these novel materials. This will be a culmination of several different collaborations as students from the Aerostructures lab worked with Dr. Taylor’s research group from Imperial College London and Dr. Tetard’s research group in the Nanoscience center of UCF.
Brooke Sarley’s abstract submission “Real-time evolution of Selective Laser Melted (SLM) Inconel 718 with temperature through synchrotron X-rays” has been accepted to the AIAA SciTech Conference. On January 12th, she will present her work at the forum session Materials for Additive Manufacturing.
