Contact information is on my biography page.
Current Research Projects:
My research program focuses on a understanding the mechanics of a few types of novel material behaviors:
- Ferromagnetic Shape Memory
- Construction of a Magneto-Mechanical Testing Machine
- Investigation of FePd Ferromagnetic Shape Memory Behavior
- Single Crystal Crack-Tip
- Stationary Notch Tip Plastic Fields
- Growing Crack Tip Plastic Fields
- Structural Phase Transformations:
- Orientation Dependence of the Transformation Behavior of Cu-Al-Ni
- Thermal Effects in NiTi Wires
- Needles in CuAlNi
- Fracture of CuAlNi
The abstracts of my publications are in a Searchable Database. Send me an email if you would like a PDF version of any of my recent papers. Publications related to the topics above are listed below under each topic.
These are materials that are both magnetic and undergo a structural phase (shape-memory) transformation.
Construction is almost complete of a Magneto-Mechanical Testing Machine (MMTM) that will allow these materials to be studied in detail.
