Abstract
Development and use of new (composite) materials is imperative for continued advancement of airframe and engine systems. It is expected that this accelerated insertion of materials can be facilitated through development and validation of analytical models that guide and supplement experimental characterization of new materials to reduce the number of physical tests to the minimum number needed to insure that reliable data exist to support both airframe and engine designer needs. In this proposal, Materials Sciences Corporation outlines a work plan for meeting this objective by assembling and linking multi-scale (i.e., micro and macro) material models, demonstrating techniques for including statistically based properties and automatically providing written and graphical output of data. Initial validation of the analysis toolset will be conducted using polyimide resin carbon fiber prepreg design data provided by Renegade Materials Corporation.
