SAMPE 2002 “Composites Affordability”

23 April 2002

The SAMPE 2002 Symposium being held at the Long Beach Convention Center May 12-16, 2002 will feature over 175 technical papers and on-site presentations. One of the current technology focus areas of interest within the advanced composites industry is that of ‘composites affordability.’

Composites Affordability Initiative technical sessions and papers were expanded for SAMPE 2002 because of the very high interest in this particular topic area and response from potential presenters and engineers working in this area of technology. In fact, three representative technical sessions on composites affordability and advanced manufacturing concepts were developed by Drs. John Russell and Frances Abrams of the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson AFB and Leonard Poveromo from Northrup Grumman. Sixteen (16) technical papers, representing about 10 percent of the SAMPE 2002 Symposium, make up the strong technical sessions contained in these areas of new technology.
