Future Army Vehicles Could See an Improvement in Structural Materials

ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, MD —¬†Materials used for a Soldier’s personal protection gear may be tough enough for vehicles too, according to a new Army study. Findings, released April 10 in the journal¬†Polymer, show that polymers…

Researchers Can Now Predict Properties of Disordered Polymers

In a new study, scientists used a combination of theory, experiment, and simulation to read patterns on long chains of molecules to understand and predict the behavior of disordered strands of proteins and polymers. The work offers detailed insights on the physics behind the precise sequence of charged monomers along the chain and how it

NSWCDD Report: Mitigating Blast and Shock Using Advanced Materials

Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Division, is collaborating with Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division, and Naval Undersea Warfare Center, Division Newport, to produce layered polyurea/woven crimp graded composite panels optimized for blast and fragment impact protection. The intent is to develop blast and impact resistant elastomeric coatings and woven fabric-reinforced polymer composites for use
