Summary

This paper surveys the accomplishments of the title research program which was funded in 1992–1997 by the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency of the Department of Defense, under the University Research Initiative at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. The main focus of the program was to provide research support and computational tools for processing and design of high—temperature composite materials and structures. Micromechanical modeling, design and analysis software, process modeling, and materials processing and characterization are discussed.
