RXA & RXC: Materials Research -- Library Resources: Home

This Guide will bring together the Materials Research and Handling resources of interest to both the Structural and Functional Materials and Applications divisions of the Materials and Manufacturing Directorate.

Materials Research

Resources to support research and development of structural materials for cradle-to-grave metals, ceramics, composites, and materials state awareness technologies with applications ranging from propulsion, airframes, hypersonic structures, munitions, and space, and centering particularly on fuel efficiency, directed energy protection, hypersonics and structural materials affordability. They also support research into rapidly transitioning functional material systems and processes to enable fight-through capability and human-machine teaming. These resources are designed to support researchers seeking to change the paradigm for structural component design, certification, and life management practices through timely development and digital integration of emerging material knowledge tailored for specific applications, and to discover, assess feasibility, identify challenges, and ensure availability of innovative material systems that generate and control information and energy.
