I am a graduate research assistant in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin. I am pursuing Ph.D Degree in Mechanical Engineering. My research focuses on the development of in-situ curing process for thermoset composites using an infrared heating.
I received a B.S. (1989) and an M.S. (1991) in the Department of Mechanical Engineering from Seoul National University in Seoul, Korea. My M.S thesis is entitled the experimental study on the measurement of temperature and velocity field in the rectangular cavity with side walls in the linear temperature distributions. I have served in the army for 6 months as an officer before I joined in Ph. D. program.
My current research concerns on demonstrating the feasibility of in-situ curinging process through numerical and experimental studies. Specific research issues are
- Proper selection of process variables using a thermochemical model for infrared, in-situ curing process
- Quality characterization of composite cylinders such as mechanical tests ans void contents
- Material characterization of Hercules 3501-6

- Thermal Analysis and process window for in-situ curing process of thermoset compostes, to be submitted.
