research overview

  • Current interests include oxide materials for battery applications and development of textile-based ceramic composite materials for use in power generation, aerospace propulsion systems, hypersonic flight, and thermal protection. Activities in the latter area include system performance analysis, composite microstructure design and processing, development of new material systems (oxide composites) for oxidation resistance, and advanced thermal, mechanical and environmental testing and modeling. Other research topics have included fracture phenomena, strengthening, toughening, environmental stability and reliability of advanced structural materials, with emphasis on ceramic and intermetallic matrix composites, ultra hard materials (cBN), transformation-toughened materials and monolithic ceramics.
