A double cantilever carbon-reinforced composite beam begins to heal itself under the actuation of macro- fiber composites after a Mode I delamination test.

In July, an AIAA Certification by Analysis Community made up of industry, academia and government/regulatory representatives completed the draft document “Recommended Practices When Flight Modeling Is Used to Reduce Flight Testing Supporting Aircraft Certification” to guide commercial applicants when flight modeling is being developed, proposed and used to reduce flight testing relative to traditional aircraft certification practices. The document strongly recommends model verification and validation and uncertainty quantification analysis components.

In 1837, The University of Alabama became one of the first five universities in the nation to offer engineering classes. Today, UA’s College of Engineering has more than 5,200 students and more than 170 faculty. In recent years, students in the College have been named USA Today All-USA College Academic Team members, Goldwater, Hollings, Portz, Boren, Mitchell and Truman scholars.
