Chapter Events

With a current roster of 80+ professional Chapters worldwide, ASM offers one of the most extensive networking opportunities available. Chapters serve as extensions of the Society to the local community by providing opportunities for professional networking, education, student outreach, professional development and more. 

Chapter events, held mainly between the months of September and June, are updated often so check back regularly for updates from our local chapter community.

Composite Design, Fabrication, Prototyping, and Production

April 27, 2017 | Copper Canyon Cafe, 5455 Gibson Blvd SE

Albuquerque , NM , USA

Fiber-reinforced composite materials are used in a number of engineering applications at Sandia National Laboratories in support of our national security mission. The Polymer Processing Laboratory has expertise and capability that supports composite design, fabrication, prototyping, and limited production for DoE and DoD Programs. This includes design, material selection, tooling production, fabrication (wet layup, pre-preg layup), curing, and final/finish machining. We also partner with polymer physicists, polymer material characterization specialists, and stress analysts to understand performance of composite structures in thermal, mechanical, and other relevant environments. This presentation will describe our equipment and capabilities, and will then focus on examples of recent applications. Sandia National Laboratories is a multi-program laboratory managed and operated by Sandia Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lockheed Martin Corporation, for the U.S. Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration under contract DE-AC04-94AL85000.
