USC M.C. Gill Composites Center’s research project “Manufacturing, Characterization, Finite Element Analysis and Structural Design Optimization of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) Hat Stiffened Panels for Aerospace Applications,” led by center researcher Bo Cheng Jin Ph’D 17, has been recently highlighted by MSC NASTRAN (NASA Structural Analysis) as a featured video, in which Jin and Professor Steven Nutt explained USC’s ongoing efforts of aerospace structural design and advanced composites manufacturing methods. The algorithms and methods developed, and the publications resulted from this project have reached researchers and educators world-wide.
