Iowa State University for the Center for Nondestructive Evaluation

1 recipient will receive $990,000. This is a continuing earmark.
Year Enacted: 2005
Description: A new grant in the amount of $992K for Advanced Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) for Future Aerospace Systems research in the area/field of physics/physical sciences. This research continuation (year 4), will extend the important basic sciences that are necessary for the development of aircraft and spacecraft that do not age or fail. The research will deliver new knowledge that will form the foundation building blocks needed to create intelligent materials that can sense, or feel, and also heal just like the human body. Having these building blocks will allow NASA to build aircraft and space vehicles that can change shape, as well as other features, so that flight will always be comfortable and safe, even in thunder storm weather. Particularly innovative is the development of fluorescence-based sensors that detect important chemicals such as oxygen, glucose and hydrzine in a package that is considerably smaller with less power consumption than existing sensors with the same sensitivity. Another innovative concept is investigating the applications of embedded magnetic sensors for interrogating the materials in which they are embedded which could lead to new ways to detect damage.
