The United States Army Research Laboratory is lending support to a Texas A&M University research project investigating potential improvement of ballistic performance of armor materials. The project, led by Dr. Justin Wilkerson, assistant professor and James J. Cain ’51 Faculty Fellow II in the J. Mike Walker ’66 Department of Mechanical Engineering, focuses on identifying what damaging effects could be caused by particular flaws — known as vacancies — in the atomic structure of aluminum.
