SAMPE Fall Technical Conference Review

Abstract:
Sessions featured presentations revealing the latest advancements in Materials and Processing (M&P). The Fiber Reinforcement, Textile and Preform session pulled in a large attendance, as it featured SAMPE's1st Place Outstanding Paper. The presentation was based on the paper "Fabrication and Mechanical Characterization of Carbon Nanotube Yarns, 3-D Braids and Their Composites," by Alexander Bogdanovich of 3TEX, Inc. and co-authors. It presented the first reported use of making nanoyarn into a 3D preform, which has structurally stiffer, stronger and more enhanced properties than untreated yarns. "We have made good on our commitment to bridge the work being done in academia with the needs of the industry," SAMPE President Ray Miller said. "In doing so, SAMPE sets the stage for continuous technological advancements."
