MAMS members are presenting in upcoming ASC 33rd conference! Check out our conferece proceedings in our publication section!
Congratulations to John Buffalo, who has been selected as a Mary Gates Research Scholar for 2018.
Developing computational and analytical tools to assist the design of lighter aerospace and automotive structures with improved manufacturability, damage tolerance and structural stability and integrity. Understanding the mechanical behavior of materials and structures at multiple scales through the formulation of advanced computational and analytical approaches and new experimental techniques.
This project aims to characterize the main failure mechanisms occurring in DFC using X-ray CT scanner, and develop a physically-based computational modeling of DFCs. The findings of this study will contribute to the safety and certification of DFC structures.
