Knitted Textiles Increase Durability of Composites for Automobiles & Aerospace

A team of University of Michigan MCubed collaborators are exploring the use of knitted textiles to further the form and durability for composites used in automobiles, airplanes, and space exploration. MCubed is a two-year seed-funding program designed to empower interdisciplinary teams of University of Michigan faculty. The program minimizes the time between idea conception and research results by providing immediate startup funds for novel projects.
