|Biography:||Dr. Paul T. Wang currently works as Manager of the Computational Manufacturing and Design Cluster at the Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems. He manages research groups and projects relevant to the development of high fidelity material models from both mechanics and materials science point of view and design tools for manufacturing and automotive applications. Prior to this new endeavor, Paul worked for Alcoa Research Laboratories for 20 years, led a thermo-mechancial processing team engaging various materials processing research programs, i.e., aluminum powder compaction and flow, polymer solid state processing, continuous caster material modeling, rolling, extrusion and forging process models incorporating microstructure evolution. His latest interests are on the development of laser deposition process, robust thermo-mechanical process design eliminating internal and surface fracture of rolled and extruded products, fracture constitutive models, recrystallization front criterion of coarse grain formation, and the integration of multi-scale modeling to processes and product performance. |
