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 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 conditions.

 


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
