Carl T. Herakovich Papers,

 Collection
Identifier: Ms-1987-033

Scope and Contents

The collection includes budget and renewal reports for the Composite Materials Research and Education Program at Virginia Tech. The collection also contains similar proposals for several other similar ventures.

A majority of this collection contains proposals, renewals, and reports related to the Composite Materials Research and Education program (NASA Grant NGR 47-004-129) at Virginia Tech in the 1970s and 1980s. Also included are posters and papers from speakers in conjunction with the program, personnel appointments, and some internal memos and correspondence.

Additional topic files relate to proposals on "Research in High Temperature Composite Materials for Aerospace Structures," "Acoustic Emission Investigation of Composite Reinforced Metals," "Aeronautics and Air Transportation Systems," and "Advanced Design Concepts Using Composite Materials."
