Geubelle work named best JEMT paper
Research by authors including Prof. Philippe Geubelle has been chosen as the best fatigue and fracture paper published in the Journal of Engineering Materials and Technology between July 2006 and June 2007. The paper, Continuum and Molecular-Level Modeling of Fatigue Crack Retardation in Self-Healing Polymers, was co-written by Spandan Maiti, Chandrashekar Shankar and John Kieffer. It appeared in the journal's October 2006 issue.
Geubelle has been a faculty member in the Aerospace Engineering Department since 1995. He has served as the department’s chief undergraduate since May, and is Director of the Illinois Space Grant Consortium.
Geubelle's research interests are theoretical and computational solid mechanics, (dynamic) fracture mechanics, multiscale modeling of complex materials, computational aeroelasticity, massively parallel computing, solid mechanics issues in manufacturing, and computational design of novel (autonomic) materials.
