A graduate research assistantship is available to pursue a PhD in Forest Resources at the University of Maine. M.S. students will also be considered. The research topic is to study the Long–term Durability Evaluation of Structural Wood Plastic Composite Timber in Aquaculture Fish Cage Applications. UMaine researchers have developed a patented wood plastic composite (WPC) technology using an engineering thermoplastic (styrene maleic anhydride (SMA) copolymer) that is stronger, stiffer and less prone to creep than current WPC materials. There is a need for data on long term durability of the SMA-WPC composites since the fish cages are typically built with a projected twenty year service life. ...
