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

Level: Graduate Student 

General Topic: Material Science/Mechanical Engineering 

Description of Research: Fiber-reinforced composites are highly advantageous because of their high strength-to-weight ratios. Designed for maximizing structural loading, composites often suffer from brittle fracture and a lack of durability. In this project, students will investigate materials used to improve impact durability, rate-dependent mechanical behavior, and fatigue lifespan. Ideal candidates are majoring in materials or mechanical engineering, have experience with CAD and MATLAB, and would enjoy hands-on experimentation.
