UTA professors are hard at work on a new project predicting the outcomes of metal fatigue. The project is funded by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research to examine the material surface of aircraft parts. The process will study how material behaves and to hopefully find ways to change the rules on how fatigue is handled. Although the project is looking to see fatigue in metal the research may help in other every day items such as shoes. Dr. Haiying Huang is head of the project and is an Aerospace engineer major as well.
