Integrated Mechanics of Processing and Composites manufacturing Technologies (IMPACT) Lab

In the IMPACT lab we study materials processing and manufacturing methods to enable industry to make their processes:

Better

Greener

Faster

Cheaper

Our research program involves both detailed modeling and extensive experimentation in order to develop a phenomenological understanding of various processes for enhanced process control and optimization.
The IMPACT Lab has current interests in the following areas:

Composites Processing Metals Processing
In-Situ Curing
On-Line Consolidation
Fiber Waviness
On-Line Process Monitoring

Summary Slides (pdf format)
Gas-Metal-Arc Welding
Homopolar Welding
Metal Powder Production
