Teton Composites, Laramie, Wyoming, US, has been awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant for $224,194 to conduct research and development work on innovative software for structural modelling of chopped fibre reinforced plastics.

The software is intended to be a one-stop desktop solution for the design engineer, allowing for iterative structural design with minimal effort. The software addresses challenging problems such as fatigue, crash, and creep behaviour of chopped fibre injection moulded parts. The goal is to provide accurate structural solutions for chopped fibre components, producing parts designed for maximum efficiency and achieved at initial fabrication rather than after multiple production iterations. 

​“The National Science Foundation supports small businesses with the most innovative, cutting-edge ideas that have the potential to become great commercial successes and make huge societal impacts,” said Barry Johnson, Director of the NSF’s Division of Industrial Innovation and Partnerships. “We hope that this seed funding will spark solutions to some of the most important challenges of our time across all areas of science and technology.” 

“NSF’s SBIR programme provides a critical foundation for jump-starting technology driven companies that simply could not launch otherwise,” notes Andrew Hansen, Principal Investigator for the grant. “We feel truly fortunate to be afforded the opportunity to advance our company under the NSF-SBIR umbrella of support.”
