Multifunctional Lightweight Structural Materials/Advanced Radiation Shielding

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Multifunctional Lightweight Structural Materials/Advanced Radiation Shielding
The team will a) survey hydrogen rich hydrides and computational analysis of GCR shielding. This will allow determination of the best hydride material for study and project GCR shielding; b) incorporation of selected hydride into hollow truss structures which will result in successful incorporation of hydride materials into the structure; c) determine the effectiveness of hydride reinforced materials for MMOD shielding vs. bare hollow trusses that will result in reinforced materials that provide significantly improved shielding.
