Authors: Nicholas Giannaris
Date/Pages: August 2015; 184 pages
Abstract: The following is a summary performed at the Composite Vehicle Research Center at Michigan State University during the period of performance ending June 20, 2014, including a one-year no-cost extension. The work described herein is cumulative and has been organized mainly into the following research thrust areas: computational modeling; flammability; self-diagnostic composite structures; impact resistance; composite joining; multifunctional composite materials; vehicle survivability and occupant safety; structural integrity of composites; and biomimetics. The research performed in each of these thrust areas is described in this report.
