Thermal welding of thermoplastics creates new opportunities for manufacturing next generation aircraft. Molecular dynamics is used to model a thermal welding process of poly(ether-ketone-ketone), and to perform a tensile test on the resulting joint.
This project is funded by NASA as part of its University Leadership Initiative program.
