    nice presentation and poster.

    I guess I wonder what was the main motivation for this study, particularly as it relates to the hybrid material that you chose model? In this regard, what are some applications for the data and models you generated?

    Professor Shin,

    the main application for the considered materials is high temperature, extreme flight conditions like those found in high speed (supersonic or hypersonic conditions), atmospheric reentry or in combustion chambers. By using the two specific constituent phases mentioned we hope to improve material performance (over past composites) through the development of residual stress states.

    The results of these analysis will be used in conjunction with collaborators designing the material to help in tailoring the manufacturing of the material.
