Industry-Driven Basic Research Program in Composites Materials Engineering

Co-PIs:  Beckry Abdel-Magid, Matthew Benson, Maryam Grami, Saeed Ziaee

This project will develop a pre-competitive basic research program in materials science and composite materials engineering through direct interaction with the local and regional composites industry.  The composite materials engineering (CME) program and COMTEC have been working closely with the composites industry on various projects.  Most of these projects are performed on confidentiality basis due to competition and sensitive data for the specific company.  However the companies have expressed a need for basic research that will benefit the entire industry in the region.  Results of this “pre-competitive” research can be shared with all the companies in the composites cluster.
