    It's with a compny called Thermovac, that is working with one of my biggest interests; composites, both polymer matrix and ceramic matrix.

    it is about an hour and 20 minutes from where i live in lansing, or about 40 minutes from my parents house back home, so if i score the job; over the summer i can live at home and have less of a commute while getting all my food provided :) SCORE!

    wish me luck fellas!

    polymer matrix composites (PMC) and ceramic matrix composites (CMC)...

    carbon fiber is a PMC... it has an expoxy matrix (the thing that holds the fibers where they should be and acts as a transfer agent to transfer stresses to fibers so a load it distrubuted throughout the entire structure rather than a small region.) and i work with armor composites and study ballistic impact resistance and such. some armor composites rely on a ceramic matrix because it is very hard (corundum for example) and when combined with some fibers in there can dissipate a great deal of energy without being perforated.

    Good luck Pills, you've worked your ass off for it, the last 3 years I've known you, you've always been taking classes and studying hardcore.

    seriously consider it... composite armor is absolutely HUGE now. there was only one guy running the composites division of the company and he had very unskilled help. i plan on bringing some new innovative ideas there adn hopefully it turns into a job after graduation
