The Amazing Adventures of ‘Superwood’ Print E-mail

Composite Research is Adding Muscle to Maine’s Mild-Mannered Timbers (February-March, 2002) UMaine Today

Technology at The University of Maine is transforming the state's lower-grade wood species into “super wood” — new value-added building materials. Engineers and wood scientists at UMaine's Advanced Engineered Wood Composites Center (AEWC) are developing new materials by combining wood with space-age plastics, such as fiber-reinforced polymers (FRPs).

Materials Made By Combining Several Others, Are Becoming Big Business In Maine 

July 21, 1998

By L. Mercedes Wesel

David Patch imagines a town in Midcoast Maine known not for lobster, loons or moose, but as a living laboratory for modern construction materials.

In Patch's vision, the bridge leading into town is made of a material that is stronger than wood, lighter than steel and lasts longer than either. The poles for the power lines are fiberglass.

Making magic with wood UM professor engineers feats with composites Print E-mail

August 21, 1997

By Susan Young
Carefully perched on a rock, Habib Dagher tapped away at the keys of a laptop computer balanced on steel rods protruding from a small wooden bridge. A piece of plastic shower curtain, decorated with a colorful children's motif, shielded him from the pouring rain.

Not exactly the glamorous life some would expect of the head of a nationally renowned research program. But for Dagher, director of the University of Maine's Advanced Engineered Wood Composites Center, it's just another day of data collection.
