Welcome to the homepage of the Computations for Advanced Materials and Manufacturing
Laboratory in the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Wyoming! At CAMML, our efforts focus on developing computational tools to understand how
materials respond and evolve during their lifespans, from manufacturing to service
and eventually failure. We concentrate our efforts to understand 1) how certain manufacturing
process affect the microstructure; 2) what is the relevant deformation mechanisms
at the material microscale associated with a certain microstructure; 3) once fabricated
into structural components, how the structure behave when subjected to various loading
Multiscale modeling of solids and structures
Crystal plasticity finite element modeling of deformation and damage in advanced alloys
IGFEM-based interface damage modeling in composites
Reduced-order multiscale modeling and optimization
Multiphysics modeling of manufacturing process
Composite manufacturing process baed on frontal polymerization, and its application
in 3D printing
Microstructure evolution during medal 3D printing
