Wind turbines, aircraft, and automobiles could become more tough and durable thanks to research being conducted at the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering. All of these use composites, materials that contain two or more constituents that have distinct properties. In these examples, the composites are composed of a polymer resin and reinforcing fibers such as glass or carbon.

Ask any professor: A good idea alone isn’t likely to receive serious research funding. Big awards almost always have some data that supports the project, that shows the researcher’s idea should work.

In a classic catch-22, though, getting this data itself takes money. Materials for experiments, graduate student time, lab space, computing power – none of these are free.
