With more than 2,500 technical abstracts from about 800 institutions in 39 countries, offering the latest research results on 44 high-impact topics, AIAA SciTech 2016 is the largest event for aerospace research, development, and technology. Our research was presented at Scitech 2016 by Imad Hanhan and Albert Manero as part of the AIAA/ASCE/AHS/ASC Structures, Structural Dynamics, and Materials Conference – one of the 12 technical conferences that make up this event. The conference provides a unique forum dedicated to the latest developments in the collective disciplines of structures, structural dynamics, materials, design engineering, and survivability.
Albert presented his research “Interpreting High Temperature Deformation Behavior of a Ceramic Matrix Composite via High Energy X-rays and Numerical Simulation” conducted in collaboration with the German Aerospace Center and Argonne National Laboratory.
Currently a graduate student at Purdue University, Imad’s research “Characterizing Mechanical Properties of Hybrid Alumina Carbon Fiber Composites with Piezospectroscopy” was part of his work for the Honors in the Major thesis conducted during his undergraduate work at UCF. The work was conducted in collaboration with Imperial College researchers.
