CAMX 2019

The CAMX 2019 Technical Paper Award and Poster Session winners have been announced. Every year, CAMX recognizes outstanding research that will impact the next generation of composites innovation. CAMX technical papers cover critical areas important to the composites and advanced materials industry from business, applications and research perspectives. Poster sessions put the work of the next generation of researchers, engineers and industry professionals on display.

This year's Outstanding Technical Paper winners are:

  • Christopher Hershey, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (Oak Ridge, Tenn., U.S.) — Large-Scale Reactive Extrusion Deposition of Sparse Infill Structures with Solid Perimeters
  • Kuang-Ting Hsiao, University of South Alabama (Mobile, Alabama) — Modeling Transversal Support from Nanofiber Z-Threads to a Carbon Fiber by Finite Element Analysis of a CFRP Unit Cell
  • Vipin Kumar, Oak Ridge National Laboratory — Replacing Metal-Based Lightning Strike Protection Layer of CFRPS by 3D Printed Electronically Conductive Polymer Layer
  • Ray Liang, West Virginia University NSF Center for Composites Infrastructure (Morgantown, W.Va., U.S.) — Worldwide Overview of Composite Applications for Waterway Infrastructure
  • Yijia Ma, University of Southern California (Los Angeles, Calif., U.S.) — Chemical Recycling of Amine/Epoxy Composites at Atmospheric Pressure: Fiber Recovery and Matrix Reuse
  • Marc Palardy-Sim, National Research Council Canada (Ottawa, Canada) — Advances in a Next Generation Measurement & Inspection System for Automated Fibre Placement
  • David Sleight, NASA Langley Research Center (Hampton, Va., U.S.) — Testing and Analysis Correlation of Composite Sandwich Longitudinal Bonded Joints for Space Launch Vehicle Structures

  • More and more composites blowing in the wind

    Wind energy is putting the uncertainty that was the hallmark of this industry in the rearview mirror. Electricity from this renewable resource is cheaper and more competitive than it's ever been — and getting more so. This massive consumer of composite materials has a bright future.

  • Composites recycling becomes a necessity

    Boeing and Airbus each is generating as much as a 1 million lb of cured and uncured carbon fiber prepreg waste each year from 787 and A350 XWB production. If you include the entire supply chain for these planes, the total is closer to 4 million lb/year. And with the automotive industry poised to consume (and waste) more carbon fiber than ever, recycling of composite materials has become an absolute necessity. The technology is there, but the markets are not. Yet.

  • HP-RTM on the rise

    Decades of development have propelled it to prominence but its future demands industrial solutions for handling cost, complexity and process control.
