Uncertainty problems arise within composite materials due to the complexity of the products. Molecular structure, interfaces and topology are three examples where uncertainty slows the development of new materials. By coupling material testing, computer simulation and advanced statistical techniques, these uncertainties can be minimized to a greater extent than experimentation alone.
