Location: U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command – Aberdeen Proving Ground

Level: Graduate Student 

General Topic: Material Science/Chemistry 

Description of Research: The primary focus of the researcher will be to formulate and additively manufactured high solids loaded resins and polymers for application to structural materials and energetic materials. The researcher would characterize the thermal and mechanical properties of the polymer via DSC, DMA, ASTM mechanical testing, rheology, and/or microscopy. The researcher would work within the team to transition the materials to others to enable energetic characterization of relevant material. Depending on the student’s interest, aspects of the research can be to prepare and scale up chemical reactions and separations to produce monomers and polymerizable oligomers for light curing and thermal curing additive manufacturing techniques with DEVCOM-ARL expert chemists. The researcher would then characterize these chemicals using FTIR, NMR, and other techniques.
