Non-metallics

Scope note
Knowledge capability and practices associated with research into the production, characteristics, structure, properties, and performance of non-metallic materials, including organic and inorganic polymeric materials, fiber and resin systems, as well as the design, development, processing and testing of those non-metals within aerospace structures such as flight systems, ground support and facility systems. Includes assessment of the durability and response of non-metallic materials to environmental conditions, composition, manufacturing processes and applied forces. Includes broad knowledge of the non-metallic materials engineering discipline, including characteristics of non-metal types such as ceramics, glasses, polymers, composites, thermal insulation, polymer and ceramic matrix composites as well as methods of processing into final products. Also includes broad capabilities in analysis, evaluation and testing of non-metallics including the analysis of the nature, behavior, and physical characteristics of non-metals and their constituents, including the mechanisms and effects by which materials react to stresses, environments, and processes.
