Modelling of Phase Transforming Cellular Material (PXCM)
28 Aug 2017 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Chidubem Nuela Enebechi, Yunlan Zhang, David Restrepo Arango, Pablo Daniel Zavattieri, Nilesh Mankame
Phase transforming cellular materials (PXCMs) are a new class of materials that can go through large deformation and return to their original configuration. Currently, there are reliable cellular materials that can resist large deformation, for example, honey comb; however, when these materials are compared to PXCMs, they cannot stay in their elastic range. The biggest advantage about PXCMs is that they are not only inexpensive materials, but they are also highly-durable and they absorb and...
Questioning in Research: A Practical Guide to Have Cooperative and Constructive Argumentative Dialogue
27 Jun 2017 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Pablo Daniel Zavattieri
In this Lunch and Learn Session we are going to discuss ways to have collaborative and respectful dialogues in academic/scientific research. In particular, we will try to focus on how to question and challenge ideas while respecting our colleagues.
Designing Architectured Materials: Evolution vs. Intelligent Design
01 Nov 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Pablo Daniel Zavattieri
There is a strong demand for new paradigms of design and development of advanced high-performance structural materials with high strength and durability that are low-cost and renewable with novel combinations of properties. Yet, most of these applications require high-performance materials that are not only stiff and strong for structural purposes, but also they need to be tough and capable of absorbing energy to avoid catastrophic failure under extreme events. Unfortunately, most engineering materials have an inverse relation between these desired properties. ...
Bio-Inspired Materials: Lessons Learned from Nature
17 Sep 2015 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Pablo Daniel Zavattieri
Pablo Zavattieri received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in nuclear engineering from the Balseiro Institute, Argentina, and his PhD from the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Purdue University. Prior to joining Purdue, he was a senior/staff researcher at the General Motors Research and Development Center. His research interests are in the area of computational solid mechanics applied to the multi-scale analysis and design of advanced and novel materials (metals, composite materials, hierarchical, multifunctional, micro-, nano- and biomimetic composite materials), interfaces and complex structures.
