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:
