Composite Metal Foams for Impact Protection of Hazardous Material Transportation

This project will focus on larger-scale manufacturing, welding, assembly, and optimization of SS CMF and evaluation of its performance in small- and large-scale dynamic puncture testing as well as a full-scale torch fire testing through both experimental and modeling approaches to prove its potential in improving the puncture and fire resistance of tank cars, particularly those that are carrying HAZMAT.
