Strength Evaluation and Damage Monitoring of CFRP Composite and Multifunctional Materials in Severe Environments

Our research interests are focused on the mechanical behavior of novel materials, such as single-layer triaxially carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) composites, triaxially CFRP composites with ferroelectric nanoparticles, for space probes. We design and develop these novel materials for a wide range of structural and functional applications (e.g., damping, energy harvesting). In our work, we make extensive use of state-of-the-art cryogenic and high temperature mechanical characterization techniques, in combination with computational modeling to gain insights into fundamental structure-property relationships of complex triaxially CFRP composites.
