PhD Candidate Grady C. Crahan - "Turret Optimization Using Passive Flow Control to Minimize Aero-Optic Effects"
Over the past several decades, optical systems have begun to be deployed regularly on aircraft that fly at compressible flow speeds. During this time, these ...
PhD Candidate José E. Lugo - "Integrating Product Form Preference into Engineering Design"
The product form has an important role in the judgment of a product, and increasingly more products within a market segment have similar technology and ...
PhD Candidate Thomas R. Coughlin - "The Mechanobiology of Trabecular Bone and Bone Marrow During Low Magnitude Mechanical Stimulation"
Bone adapts to mechanical loading through the coordination of many cell types including osteocytes, osteoblasts, osteoclasts, and stem cells. These cells sense ...
PhD Candidate Erin Johnson - "Tribology of Large Diameter Head Total Hip Devices"
Total hip arthroplasty constructs are sophisticated tribological bearings, made of materials such as Cobalt-Chrome and Ceramic. Advances in materials and ...
PhD Candidate Holly Weiss - "Engineering a Replacement Bone Tissue With Adult Adipose-Derived Stem Cells"

PhD Candidate Bahman Aboulhasanzadeh - "Multiscale Computations of Mass Transfer in Bubbly Flows"
Mass transfer and reaction in the liquid phase of gas-liquid multiphase flows usu- ally takes place at a considerably slower rate than the transfer of ...
PhD Candidate Neerajha Nagarjan - "Biomechanical Investigation of Engineered Muscle Tissue Constructs for Disease Modeling and Biorobotics"
Contractility of heart muscle cells, or cardiomyocytes (CM), is the major parameter for determining their maturity and functionality. Consequently, ...
PhD Candidate Tyler Kreipke - "The Structural, Mechanical, and Biological Relationships of Trabecular Bone in Osteoporosis"
Osteoporosis is the most common pathology affecting bone and is characterized by degradation of bone’s structural integrity, leading to increased fracture ...
PhD Candidate Anne E. Martin - "Predictive Modeling of Healthy and Amputee Walking Using a Simple Planar Model"
It is generally accepted that the design of the foot can influence gait for both robots and amputees. However, the nonlinear nature of bipedal systems combined ...
