Research Interest

Anil’s research focuses on elucidating the mechanical behavior of additively manufacturing materials, including polymers and composites, at a wide range of strain rates. In recent years, additive manufacturing enabled transformational change in designing and developing products in every industrial section, ranging from space to consumer and sports goods. However, the layer-by-layer deposition poses a significant scientific challenge on whether failure nucleates within the printed layer or at the interface between subsequent layers. Therefore, Anil will experimentally investigate the mechanical response at quasistatic and ultrahigh strain rates, using integrated loading, digital image correlation, and laser-induced shock waves. Anil will also investigate the applicability of his research outcomes in the automative industry.
