Research Opportunities in Dynamic Response
of Materials, Composites, and Metamaterials
Dr. Alireza V. Amirkhizi
Assistant Professor, Mechanical Engineering
University of Massachusetts Lowell
Abstract:
At UMass Lowell’s Dynamic Behavior of Materials laboratory, we study the response of polymers, composites, and metamaterials under a broad range of dynamic events. Form ballistic impact tests to the acoustics of 3D printed media, we evaluate and measure the time-dependent response of natural and engineered materials. Furthermore, we design new micro-structures for metamaterials for control of stress wave propagation through novel simulation and analysis approaches.
Speaker:
Alireza V. Amirkhizi received his B.Sc. in Civil Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in Tehran, Iran in 2000, and his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from UC San Diego, in 2006. He continued as a post-doctoral scholar and later as Research Scientist and Associate Director of Center of Excellence for Advanced Materials at UCSD, before joining the faculty of Mechanical Engineering at University of Massachusetts, Lowell in January 2014. His research focus is on dynamics and failure of materials in extreme loadings, novel composites such as 3D printed acoustic metamaterials and gradient media, and characterization of flexible hybrid electronics in multi-axial and high rate loadings with particular attention to interfacial strength of rigid/flexible connections.
