US Army scientists discover how to predict damage in future military vehicles

With damage precursors, Army researchers Ed Habtour, left, and Dr. Dan Cole hope to convert the structural skins of aerial vehicle components (wings, blades) into "living" surfaces that could sense, react and adapt to the operational conditions.

Army researchers made an important discovery during metals testing that could impact the way the structural health of current and future military vehicles are deemed “healthy and more efficient.” The discovery may lead to saving time and money, as well […]
