Areas of Research
• Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) alignment Device
• Study on evaluating risk of internal defects in laminated composite structures
In this project, a consistent set of methodologies will be developed for progressive damage modeling of composite laminates for aircraft tail wing under flight loading conditions.
The progressive damage model will include the delamination and debonding damage (interlaminar failure) as well as the ply failure (intralaminar failure) response of the composite laminates.
Develop probability of detection model for composite aircraft tail wing using SLAP(Stochastic Life Approach).
• Damage detection in smart composite using Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Delamination is one of the most critical defect in laminated composite as it can propagate rapidly and may cause catastrophic failure.
Contrary to high-frequency guided waves and acoustic emission, our research group specializes in the local and global assessment of delamination using low-frequency structural vibration response.
Our research group has successfully implemented Principal Component Analysis (PCA), conventional machine learning (e.g., Support Vector Machine (SVM)) and deep learning (e.g., Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) ) for the autonomous assessment of delamination in smart composite laminates.
Currently, we are working on transfer learning and physics-based data augmentation for prognostic and health management of lab scale and real life composite structures.
