Marina Selezneva from the masters of aerospace engineering program knows how to tear it up in the lab. She demonstrates how lightweight composite material is stress tested for use in the aircraft of tomorrow. The sample is stretched with over 1,000 lbs. of force until it breaks. Ryerson students at the Facility for Research on Aerospace Materials and Engineering Structures – or FRAMES for short – are collaborating with other universities and partners in the aviation industry to determine if the new material can be used to build lighter and more efficient aircraft.
