Fires and explosion countermeasures in confined spaces
Dr Stanger’s work revolves around the utilisation (and preparation) of coal. This transformation of coal into valued feed materials and higher value carbon products has led to active projects on the manufacture of carbon fibre and specialty foam, which could have a range of military applications. Carbon fibre is used in aerospace and transport vehicles to reduce weight and improve composite material strength. Carbon foams have low density and high thermal stability making them a potential material for rocket manufacture as insulative housing for electronics.
