Research Areas

Composite Materials and StructuresAdvanced fiber composites have gained wide applications in aircraft and aerospace structures. Our research programs cover a broad spectrum in mechanics and design of various composite materials and structures. Research topics include developing methods for testing and modeling high strain rate and fracture behavior of polymeric composites, unconventional modeling of heterogeneous solids, exploring the use of nano particles in reinforcing composites, developing self-assembly methods for processing nanocomposites, improving methods for joining composite structures using adhesives, and developing multifunctional composite materials and structures.

Fracture Mechanics Fracture mechanics is an important tool in analyzing failure in materials and structures. Our current research focuses on fracture of highly ductile metals and cohesive zone fracture modeling. We have successfully demonstrated that the crack tip opening angle (CTOA) as a crack growth criterion is independent of specimen size and can be used for predicting fracture failure in ductile materials. The CTOA approach is being investigated for use in predicting failure in metallic structures with widespread damage. Our effort in the subject of cohesive zone models is centered on the cohesive law: its physical meaning and conditions it must satisfy.

Smart Materials The use of piezoelectric materials as actuators and sensors in adaptive structures demands these materials to perform under increasingly high electrical and mechanical loads. Durability and reliability of actuators have become important issues. Our current research aims at solving a number of fundamental problems involving cracks in piezoceramics subjected to combined electrical and mechanical loads.

Nanomaterials – Many nanostructured materials possess highly desired physical and mechanical properties and offer tremendous potentials in many applications. Our research is concentrated on developing multiscale modeling techniques for nanomaterials and their composites and on the use of molecular mechanics to study the behavior of nanomaterials including nancomposites.
