Polymer and Polymer Composites Processing Research 
Nearly one third of the useful objects in the world are manufactured from polymers and polymer blends and composites. The deformation science of these materials when they flow to form useful objects is very important. Our research focuses on understanding the transport processes in composite materials and rheologically complex fluids. 
Experimental Studies:  
 - Rheology of Long Fiber Composite Materials 
 - Flow of Short Fiber Suspensions 
 - Manufacturing with Resin Transfer Molding 

Modeling and Simulations:  
 - Modeling and Simulation of Manufacturing Processes 
 - Transport Processes in Composite Processing 
 - Modeling of Void Formation and Bubble Growth in Polymers 
 - Parallel Computing to Develop Fast Simulations 

Flow simulation of cone shaped mold with respect to draping effects.
