 Oak Ridge National LaboratoryChristopher Bowland Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) Other Energy Technologies Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Carbon and Composites Group develops and transitions innovative science and technology impacting U.S. energy security. Key innovation thrusts include: polymeric and carbon fiber manufacturing; rheology of reinforced polymers and their process engineering; reactive extrusion; polymer synthesis and modifications; multi-functional composites and sensors; multi-material composites; molecular dynamics and DFT-based predictive simulations of materials; bench-scale composite prototyping; interactions of polymers―gaseous fluid systems and barrier properties of polymers; and value-added sustainable materials/composites from domestic and industrial waste/byproducts. Comprehensive capabilities include modeling-based materials design; fiber spinning and thermochemical processing of fibers; thermal, rheological, mechanical, and structural characterization of materials; and early-stage development, evaluation, and transition of affordable materials and manufacturing technologies.

On-going work performed within the ARPA-E REPAIR program has resulted in the development of a deposition device that coats the inside of a 12-inch diameter steel pipe with a thermoset to renew the structural integrity of aging gas pipelines. This deposition technology could be further developed and utilized to create conduits during the boring process.
