Computations for Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Laboratory

About CAMML

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 forcus on developing computationals tools to understanding how materials response and evolve during their liftspan, from manufacturing to service and eventually failure. We concentrate our efforts to underastand 1) how cetrain manufacturing process affect the microstructure;  2) what is the reveland deformation mechanicms at the material scale; 3) once fabricated into strucutal components, how the sructure behave when subjected to variaous loading comditions.

 


Research Interests

  1. Multiscale modeling of solids and structures

    1. Crystal plasticity finite element modeling of deformation and damamge in advanced alloys

    2. IGFEM-based interface damage modeling in composites

    3. Reduced-order multiscale moldeling and optimization

  2. Multiphysics modeling of manufacturing process

    1. Composite manufacturing process baed on frontal polymerization, and its application in 3D printing

    2. Microstructure evolution during medal 3D printing
