The American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) released the third issue of Composites Research Journal (CRJ).
The quarterly, electronic journal features the best peer-reviewed research in the composites industry as decided by the Editorial Review Board. The goal of the Journal is to promote the technology of composite materials and processes, and the commercial application of products. The CRJ publishes technical research from a broad spectrum of the composites industry and academia. The most recent issue includes work in the area of materials performance, including the following papers:
A 15-Year Study of the Effective Use of Permeation Barriers in Marine Composites to Prevent Corrosion and Blistering: Part 2, Evaluation of the Physical Properties, by David J. Herzog and Paul P. Burrell of Interplastic Corporation;
Burning Behavior at High Applied Heat Flux Levels: Implications for Determination of Material Properties, by Patricia A. Beaulieu and Robert G. Bill of FM Global and Nicholas A. Dembsey of Worcester Polytechnic Institute;
Performance of Composite Construction Products in Reaction-to-Fire Tests, by J. Huczek, M. Mehrafza and M. Janssens of Southwest Research Institute;
Understanding the Effects of Clay Fillers in the Pultrusion Process, by James G. Vaughan and Ellen Lackey of the University of Mississippi, and Gary M. Freeman and Dean Ross of J.M. Huber;
Processing and Properties of ATH Fillers in the Pultrusion Process, by Ellen Lackey and James G. Vaughan of The University of Mississippi, and Dean Ross of J.M. Huber Corporation;
Pultruded FRP Plank as Formwork and Reinforcement for Concrete Structures, by Lawrence Bank, Michael Oliva, Han-Ug Bae, and Jeffrey Barker of University of Wisconsin, and Seung-Woon Yoo of Kwandong University.
