Publications

TELAMS publications are forthcoming. Below is a list of TELAC (Technology Laboraratory for Advanced Composites) reports since the offical inception in 1978 as well as those available reports from the time period predating that. Single copies of all reports, except those so indicated, are available through the laboratory at a nominal fee of 10¢ per page to cover reproduction, plus $5.00 for postage and handling. The number in parentheses after each report indicates the total number of pages. Please order the reports by report number by sending an e-mail to Mark Prendergast at markep@mit.edu
