Two ME professors received the 2018 National Science Foundation’s CAREER award, which is the Foundation’s most prestigious award in support of early-career faculty. Prof. Xu Chen’s award will support his research on thermal modeling, sensing, and controls to enable new generations of powder bed fusion (PBF) additive manufacturing. In contrast to conventional machining, where parts […]
New DoE Funded Advanced Manufacturing Program to Educate a New Generation of Engineering Leaders
The new grant funded by the US Department of Energy supports new graduate programs in Mechanical Engineering to train the next generation of advanced manufacturing leaders. The UConn effort has been led by Prof. Ugur Pasaogullari. More details can be found on the School of Engineering website.
Atomistic Modeling at Experimental Strain Rates and Time Scales
Abstract: I will present a new computational approach that couples a recently developed potential energy surface exploration technique with applied mechanical loading to study the deformation of atomistic systems at strain rates that are much slower, i.e. experimentally-relevant, as compared to classical molecular dynamics simulations, and at time scales on the order of seconds or […]
What’s at Stake for Apple in iPhone Legal Case
In what some are calling the most important technology case of the decade, the FBI has obtained a court order compelling tech giant Apple to develop special software that will allow them to bypass security measures and unlock an iPhone belonging to one of the shooters in the San Bernardino mass shooting last December.
