• Development of novel synthetic turf infill materials 

      Harper, Richard Eugene (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-08-19)
      Mitigation of health and heat-build-up issues related to black, granulated crumb rubber infill (GCRI) in synthetic turf fields (STF) while maintaining acceptable impact absorption properties was the central goal of this ...
    • Fragmentation and reaction of structural energetic materials 

      Aydelotte, Brady Barrus (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-08-20)
      Structural energetic materials (SEM) are a class of multicomponent materials which may react under various conditions to release energy. Fragmentation and impact induced reaction are not well characterized phenomena in ...
    • Impact-initiated combustion of aluminum 

      Breidenich, Jennifer L. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-11-11)
      This work focuses on understanding the impact-initiated combustion of aluminum powder compacts. Aluminum is typically one of the components of intermetallic-forming structural energetic materials (SEMs), which have the ...
    • Modeling and Simulation of the Impact Response of Linear Cellular Alloys for Structural Energetic Material Applications 

      Jakus, Adam (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-05-04)
      We investigate the deformation and fracture as well as stress transfer behavior of 250 maraging steel linear cellular alloys (LCAs) undergoing high velocity impact upon a rigid target. Of paramount importance for application ...
