Understanding meteorite properties and behaviors will help develop global security systems against meteor impact.
The project research goal is to develop design guidelines for damage tolerant structures for circular hollow sections of seamless carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) matrix composites. The researcher has tested how to conduct the hydrostatic testing and identified what factors must be overcome before testing. The damage characterization of internal pressurization can be used by
The objective of this project is to perform mechanical analysis on a computationally generated foam core structure. To do this, it was deemed necessary to model the foam core in 3D using a finite element solver. The current research is focused on developing a methodology to import closed cell foam geometries that are generated using
