State of Utah Advisory Council on Science and Technology, Science and Advisory
PUBLICATIONS & BOOKS
Authored over 250 technical publications that established industry standards for composite materials, composite/FRP structures, and solid propulsion design, analysis, testing, inspection, and manufacturing methodology. Author of critical reports on composite pressure vessel design, manufacturing and processing, test and inspection methods, damage assessment, and accept/reject criteria – current primary industry standards for assessing impact, surface cut, abrasion, and delamination damage to composite pressure vessels and tanks. Developed advanced and practical `hands-on', technology courses for key composites manufacturing processes (filament winding, resin transfer molding, hand layup, vacuum bagging, and hybrid combinations).
