Materials in aggressive environments must be experimentally characterized before they are put to use in systems such: engines, fuselages, armor, and hypersonic vehicles. Numerical modeling of these structures must also be carried our to ensure proper performance of the structure over the long term. As a part of the Mechanics of Materials Research Group (momrg.cecs.ucf.edu), students will learn to use experimental equipment and software associated with on-going, graduate-level research.
Start Date: 1/11/2021 - End Date: 4/27/2023
