Design methodology of self-sensing structural composite materials using multiscale thermo-mechanical modeling
Langley Research Center (LARC) - Internship
The proposed research aims to demonstrate a capability whereby a multifunctional material can be designed to achieve its structural requirements, while being optimized to function collaboratively with a specified sensing capability. To this end, a novel modeling and simulation based method will combine kinetic Monte Carlo for the onset and evolution of SMA phase transformation and finite element analysis for the local stress state.
