Strain Measurement of Kevlar Webbing

Inflatable structures are being researched as a means for long-duration living in space. The research program at NASA hit a roadblock in testing a key material: Kevlar. A range of testing methods had been tried but none suited all scenarios. After many internal attempts, NASA came to InnoCentive. By focusing problem solvers from outside the industry directly at the problem, we were able to deliver a range of solutions and new possibilities.
