Expert in Mechanics of Composites, Micromechanics, Nanocomposites, Modeling, Probability
Simulations of micromechanical problems are based on the mathematical modeling involving the theory of random processes, linear and nonlinear integral equations, partial-differential equations, psevdodifferential equations with rapidly oscillated deterministic and random coefficients in bounded and unbounded domains. Their solutions require special numerical procedures that Expert has either developed or been involved with their development. Expert has used Fortran in his scientific research employing a variety of platforms, from mainframe computers to Unix Workstations, and to PCs.
Expert has an internationally recognized reputation in continuum modeling of nanocomposites desined by the addition of minor amounts of fillers that have characteristic dimensions on the nanometer length scale to polymer matrix-based materials. He has obtained fundamental results in the prediction of effective mechanical properties of nanocomposites reinforced by nanofibers and silicate nanoplates depending on the prescribed random orientation of nanoelements, their axfoliation, arrangement, and clustering.
Expert has 10 years experience in the areas of micromechanical modeling of high performance metal-matrix composites (MMCs) based on aluminum, titanium, and refractory metal alloys reinforced with various ceramic fibers (and filaments, whiskers, particulates) of silicon carbide, carbon, and oxides.
He worked as a Consultant in a two-year (2004, 2005) research project between AFOSR and NAS of Ukraine involving 10 Ukrainan scientists.
Expert may consult nationally and internationally, and is also local to the following cities: Indianapolis, Indiana - Fort Wayne, Indiana - Muncie, Indiana - Anderson, Indiana - Columbus, Ohio - Cincinnati, Ohio - Dayton, Ohio - Springfield, Ohio - Hamilton, Ohio - Middletown, Ohio
