Levich Institute Seminar Announcement, 05/09/2017
Steinman Hall, Room #312
(Chemical Engineering Conference Room)
Dr. Emily Asenath-Smith
Engineer Research and Development Center
Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory
"Cold (and Warm!) Materials RDT&E at the US Army's Cold Regions Laboratory"
Cold regions research challenges include both terrestrial and synthetic materials. The properties of native snow, ice, and permafrost are just as important as the performance and durability of engineered materials in extreme cold temperatures. Building from the CRREL legacy in snow and ice research, current projects on ice adhesion and water resources will be discussed.
