UNH Researchers Find Seed Coats Could Lead to Strong, Tough, yet Flexible Materials

Researchers say that the design principles described show a promising approach for increasing the mechanical performance of tiled composites of man-made materials. Since the overall mechanical properties of the prototypes could be tuned over a very large range by simply varying the waviness of the mosaic-like structures, they believe it can provide a roadmap for

RFI – Advanced Materials Solutions for Defense Applications

Language in the House Armed Services Committee FY18 Appropriations budget bill calls for DoD to assess current status and steps to address gaps in advanced materials, composites and manufacturing processes that will contribute to superior military performance, sustainment, and readiness across many applications, including air vehicles of all types, armor, munitions, prosthetics, batteries. Recommendations to

Kevlar-Based Artificial Cartilage Mimics the Magic of the Real Thing

The unparalleled liquid strength of cartilage, which is about 80 percent water, withstands some of the toughest forces on our bodies. Synthetic materials couldn”t match it—until “Kevlartilage” was developed by researchers at the University of Michigan and Jiangnan University. “We know that we consist mostly of water—all life does—and yet our bodies have a lot
