NSF Faculty Early-Career Award Recognizes UMass Lowell Professor’s Research on Advanced Composite Materials August 08 2022

2022 Lucintel Composites Market Insights, August 08, 2022

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has recognized Mechanical Engineering Asst. Prof. Marianna Maiaru with the agency’s most prestigious faculty early-career development award, for research that could lead to improvements in the performance of everything from booster rockets to sports equipment.
Maiaru’s work focuses on thermoset composite materials, which are advanced polymers reinforced with high-strength fibers that are used to create lightweight yet super strong structural components for a wide range of applications – from missiles, spacecraft and satellites to commercial and military aircraft, wind turbine blades and even sports helmets.
Maiaru will use her NSF funding – worth more than $568,000 over a period of five years – to conduct multiscale process modeling and experiments in the lab. Her goal is to develop crack-free thermoset composites and optimize their performance, as well as to reduce manufacturing time, cost, material waste and energy consumption while creating better composite materials, including 3D woven textiles, bonded adhesives and thermosets for additive manufacturing (3D printing).
