Title: Assessment of the current material state of fiber-reinforced composite materials

ABSTRACT: Composite materials which are inherently heterogeneous have widespread applications, i.e. aerospace, microelectronics, defense, energy storage, etc., because of their unique properties and performance. Changes in the material state of these complex material systems that occur during the service life caused by deformation and damage accumulation under combined mechanical, thermal, and electrical fields, require fundamental understanding to support the design of those material systems. This talk will discuss fiber-reinforced composite materials and the nondestructive assessment of the material state of these advanced materials systems

BIO: Rassel Raihan is an Assistant Professor in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) Department. Prior to joining the MAE department, he was a Research Engineer III for the Institute of Predictive Performance Methodologies (IPPM) at the University of Texas at Arlington Research Institute (UTARI). His research focuses on the damage and life prediction of heterogeneous materials, Adhesively Bonded Joints, and Multifunctional Composites. Dr. Raihan was at the University of South Carolina as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at HeteroFoam Center. He obtained his Ph.D. in August 2014 and Master of Engineering in December 2012 from the University of South Carolina in Mechanical Engineering. He received a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) in 2007.
