Areas of Interest 

Traditionally, SAMPE has largely been a society populated by those involved with advanced polymer matrix composites for aerospaceapplications. However, Midwest SAMPE is striving to broaden the chapter scope to include the following general areas that are relevant to the local industrial and research communities:

  • Short Fiber Polymer Matrix Composites
  • Ceramic Matrix Composites (Short and Long Fiber)
  • Matrix Composites (Short and Long Fiber)

In addition to these areas of focus, there are numerous other critical areas of materials and processes technology that are being
addressed on a local or national level, including the following:

  • Adhesives: Processing, Bonding & Inspection
  • Aging Aircraft Systems: Integrity, Corrosion, Materials, Repair
  • Alternative Energy & Transportation Systems
  • Ballistic Materials/Energy Absorption
