Composites Forum Today

This is from John Thornton, former Fringe head mechanic and current employee in the Robotics Department who is developing a long-needed center for composites. There is a forum today on campus at 4:30. See the full details.

Composite technology has long been an underground phenomenon at Carnegie Mellon. It is now time to bring this movement into the open for the first time.

Please join the newly formed Composites Development Center, part of Carnegie Mellon’s Field Robotics Center, as it hosts Carnegie Mellon’s first Composites Forum this Monday, November 4, from 4:30 to 6:15 p.m. in Newell-Simon Hall room 1305. The discussion will feature NASA Senior Advisor for Composites and Structures Mark Shuart, as well as an overview of the Composites Development Center, Sweepstakes (Buggy), the Society of Automotive Engineers, and the Solar Boat project team. The Composites

Forum will be an opportunity to engage in a discussion about the evolution of composites development at Carnegie Mellon, current research and projects, and the future of composites technology and education at CMU.

Please forward this information along to anyone you think might be interested in composites development, current NASA projects, Buggy, SAE, or the Solar Boat project. We hope to see you there.

  • Drat, can’t make it. I’m sure most of my contributions would be in the ‘how best to disable fire alarm/suppression systems’-vein though. Hopefully Bordick can get y’all a detailed report on the importance of wood screws when building composite structures.

  • sorry to have missed it as well. I could have contributed “oven making on a budget: i.e. you didn’t need that space heater anyway”

  • What are these composites that you are talking about? I only know how to tune household fabrics with an overly elaborate matrix of metal posts. I would probably only be able to ask questions about how high I could get on the resin fumes.

    thank you so much to everyone who came! Both John and I really appreciated the support and hope it was informative 🙂
