Kelvin Fu, assistant professor in the College of Engineering’s Department of Mechanical Engineering, received an Award for Composites Excellence (ACE) in the Innovation in Green Composites Design category. Hosted by the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA), this award recognizes outstanding innovations for unique composite applications. Fu was recognized for his group’s Wood Universal Feedstock for Forming (WuFF). This material uses a similar approach as the Tailored Universal Feedstock for Forming (TuFF) materials developed at UD’s Center for Composite Materials (CCM), but uses wood as a reinforming material instead of short carbon fibers. Fu was presented with this award at the annual Composites and Advanced Materials Expo (CAMX), which took place Oct. 30-Nov. 2 in Atlanta, Georgia.
