Research Keyword: constitutive modeling

Faculty: Jordan, Eric
Department: Mechanical Engineering
Excerpt: Dr. Jordan currently has six funded projects, including three sponsored by industry.   One active area is the fabrication of coatings by plasma spray — primarily thermal barrier coatings for gas turbines — although one very successful coating project was a nano wear coating for the Navy that saved $25 million. In plasma spray, Dr. Jordan […]

Faculty: Pierce, David M.
Department: Mechanical Engineering
Excerpt: Dr . Pierce’s research interests focus on the theory, development and application of pragmatic computational methods, supported by physical experiments, for problems of practical importance. Examples include: (1) constitutive modeling and finite element analysis of cartilage and arteries with consideration towards future clinical applications (e.g., medical device design and device interaction with patients), and (2) […]
