Dr. Youssef receives $26,697 grant from Amorcast Products Company

Dr. Youssef received a $26,697 grant from Amorcast Products Company to conduct research on the characterization of creep behavior of E-glass/Epoxy composite panels.

In this project, we are trying to answer a fundamental question about the effect of creep on the mechanical performance of E-glass/Epoxy composite panels used in the construction industry. In previous efforts, we characterized the dynamic properties of these panels after field deployment. The sponsor estimates that outcomes of our experimental investigation will expand their market share.
