Ms. Paula Heimann is a Senior Engineer in the Polymer processing Lab. Paula is working on several projects that include the development of processing techniques for complex shaped materials in the autoclave. Polymer composite panels manufactured in both autoclaves and high temperature hydraulic presses are also being developed for use in mechanical testing. This includes the recent addition of thermoplastic materials that are being investigated for their ability to lend themselves to welding techniques for the joining of composites.
