Amount: $100,000.00
Funding Agencies: National Science Foundation (NSF)

The NSF IUCRC for Integration of Composites into Infrastructure (CICI) is specialized at innovating advanced fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites and techniques for the rapid repair, strengthening or replacement of highway, railway, waterway, bridge, building, pipeline and other critical civil infrastructure. The Center consists of West Virginia University (WVU) as the lead institution in the current Phase II, with North Carolina State University (NCSU), the University of Miami (UM), and the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) as partner university sites. The primary objective of the Center is to accelerate the adoption of polymer composites and innovative construction materials into infrastructure through joint research programs between the university sites in collaboration with the composites and construction industries. In Phase III, CICI aims to broaden its scope of research in composites to include: 1) nondestructive testing methods; 2) manufacturing techniques, such as 3D printing; 3) inspection techniques, such as the use of drones with high resolution cameras; 4) in-situ modifications of infrastructure systems, resulting in enhanced durability and thermo-mechanical properties; and 5) cost-effective recycling of high value composites.

Flight testing of Composite Origami for Solar Arrays

Date: 07/01/19 - 12/31/22
Amount: $57,985.00
Funding Agencies: PE CONSORTIUM

The three foundations of precision engineering are fabrication, metrology and control. The first is the creation of a surface or mechanism, the second measuring its shape or motion and the third is finding a way to improve the result with feedback control. The support of the PEC by the technical community will improve the ability to make and measure new mechanisms and surfaces leading to innovative solutions.

Investigate the cycle of chip seizure when turning pure aluminum with both carbide and diamond tools.

Date: 07/01/19 - 12/31/22
Amount: $44,771.00
Funding Agencies: PE CONSORTIUM

This project focuses on developing a process to deliver the best form and finish on a mold for making arrays of microscale lenses. The envisioned process will use plastic deformation to replicate lens-like features on a diamond die in the mold. The die will be made with a focused ion beam milling process.
