BIOSKETCH

 

  • In 1975 he joined the Mechanical Sciences Division of the Fundamental Research Laboratory (Bain Laboratory) of U.S. Steel Corporation, and served successively as Research Scientist and Senior Research Scientist till 1981.
  • In 1982 he joined MIT as an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering, and is currently the  Warren and Towneley Rohsenow Professor of Mechanical Engineering.

Teaching

 

He teaches undergraduate- and graduate-level subjects related to Mechanical Behavior of Materials, Continuum Mechanics, and Plasticity at MIT.

 

 

Research

 

His research focuses on the development of a physical understanding and quantitative modeling of   inelastic deformation and failure phenomena in engineering materials. He has experimentally studied, and theoretically  and computationally modeled  the deformation and failure response of a wide variety of materials, with   particular emphasis on formulating mathematical theories for large deformations of polycrystalline metals, granular materials, and polymers, as well as studies of shear-band localization phenomena which lead to ductile fracture. His recent research includes developing constitutive theories for plasticity of shape-memory metals, amorphous metallic glasses, and  nanocrystalline materials, as well as higher-order strain-gradient  theories for metal plasticity.

 

He has made substantial contributions to the development of plasticity theories at large deformations, and to the development of robust numerical methods for the implementation of these theories in finite-element-based computer programs. In particular, the following body of his work is widely-cited:

 

 

  • Large-deformation high-temperature isotropic viscoplasticity, and attendant computational procedures: This work forms the basis of the finite-element implementation of plasticity in various widely-used commercial finite-element codes. This theory is now routinely used in applications ranging from the computational design of three-dimensional deformation processes, to reliability prediction of solder-joints and thermal design of electronic packaging.

 

  • Large-deformation crystal plasticity: This work includes a detailed accounting of the underlying inelastic deformation mechanisms of slip, twinning, and phase-transformations, and has been used to develop continuum-level models of the anisotropic response of fcc, bcc, and hcp polycrystalline materials. Robust computational procedures for these complex constitutive equations have been developed, and these procedures have been applied to study crystallographic texture evolution and anisotropy in a wide variety of deformation processing operations.

Current Research

  • Crystal-mechanics based large-deformation plasticity theory. Application to deformation processing of metals.
  • Thermo-mechanically-coupled crystal-mechanics-based theory of shape-memory materials.
  • Mechanical behavior of nanocrystalline materials.
  • Thermo-mechanically-coupled theory for large viscoplastic deformations of polymeric materials. Application to nanoimprinting of amorphous polymers.
  • Thermo-mechanically-coupled theory for large viscoplastic deformations of metallic glasses. Application to superplastic forming at the micro/nano-scales.
  • Strain-gradient plasticity.
  • Coupled  fluid permeation and large deformations in elastomeric gels.
  • Shape-memory polymers.
  • Coupled diffusion-oxidation-creep deformation and damage in thermal barrier coatings.

  1. During the period September 1989 through August 1991, while on leave from MIT, he served as Program Director for the Mechanics and Materials Program, as well as the Manufacturing Processes Program, in the Engineering Directorate of the National Science Foundation. During this period, he organized numerous workshops on research issues in theoretical, computational, and experimental plasticity, as well as the application of plasticity theory in various manufacturing process.
  2. During the five-year period 1994-1999, he served the Applied Mechanics community through his service on the Executive Committee of the Applied Mechanics Division of ASME; he was the Chair of this Committee in 1999.
