Ph.D. in Engineering Science
For utilizing nano materials in infrastructure applications, they should exist in huge quantities, in low cost, and they should be applied efficiently to achieve the ultimate goal design, based on fundamental mechanical and physical laws. To achieve this goal multiscale characterization and modeling is needed to deliver our thorough application effectively. The main objective in this research is to implement multiscale characterization of the nano-micro-meso-macro properties of advanced polymeric and cementitious nanocomposites, to correlate mechanical properties to morphology. This include a proposed joint experimental-theoretical approach.
