Talk Title: Disruptive Technologies in Support of Agile Processes for Air Force Applications
Abstract: Increased demand and competition require novel approaches in composite manufacturing. This includes the systematic use of machine learning and artificial intelligence tools and disruptive technologies in materials discovery, process monitoring and performance evaluation of composites. This presentation will cover examples from the Functional and Structural Materials Division of the Materials & Manufacturing Directorate of the Air Force Research Laboratory with a focus on additive manufacturing of polymer matrix composites.
Biography: Dr. Hilmar Koerner is a research lead at the Composites Branch, Structural Materials Division, Materials and Manufacturing Directorate, Air Force Research Laboratory, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, Ohio. He leads a research team solving current challenges in polymer matrix composites, materials and processes, with focus on physics-based understanding of composite processing and materials discovery in high temperature thermosetting polymers. His research has made major impact in the field of high temperature polymer matrix composites for additive manufacturing. His expertise is in real-time measurements using advanced synchrotron sources of polymeric systems under highly non-equilibrium conditions.
