Acquisition of Equipments for Composite Manufacturing Laboratory

An interdisciplinary team of faculty has been formed to upgrade the Composite Manufacturing and Testing Facilities at Missouri S&T. The Metering Unit will be useful to manufacture composite pultruded parts using two part polyurethane resin system. The current pultrusion manufacturing facility is restricted to epoxy, polyester and vinyl ester resin systems. The Metering Unit will enable us to manufacture composite parts using polyurethane resin system. Composite test fixtures are required to conduct specialized tests like Compression after Impact, Open Hole Compression and Interlaminar Shear.
