Project Objective

Develop a professional and functional web site to enable the UTC to achieve its technology transfer functions more effectively.

Project Abstract

The website will provide an effective communication medium to enhance the
Center's technology transfer. This site will inform users of the Center's current, past and future
activities, technological capabilities, opportunities for technology transfer, and relationships with
other organizations. The website will also provide a user-friendly vehicle for contact with
individuals and organizations interested in fiber-reinforced polymers in the area of
transportation. Since many of our users will connect to the web through a modem, unnecessary
frills are kept to a minimum.

Task Description

Design a structure that is user friendly, professional looking and practical for
the users, development of a process to collect and prepare material for web presentation,
collection of that material and development of the web site with the appropriate content.

Anticipated Benefits

It is by sharing this information that researchers can understand what has been done. Practitioners can learn about the application of these technologies.

Relationship to other Research/Projects

This is a communication medium for the other projects.

Technology Transfer Activities

The main purpose of this project is to inform interested individuals outside the Center about our activities on advanced composite materials and non-destructive testing applicable to transportation, and to share the result of those activities.
