Welding, Welding Processes Expert Consultant Resume
 

This expert specializes in welding engineering, welding research, welding processes and welded materials, materials science and engineering.

This expert has conducted welding research including improving reliability of results by optimizing uncertain model parameters, tailoring weld attributes using population based optimization algorithms, and embedding physicochemical processes to make models realistic. Resulting simulations of geometry, composition and structure of welds/materials provide solutions to important production and design problems based on scientific principles. Because these models are useful for quantitative understanding of welding processes and welded materials, they have been widely used by many researchers from all over the world.

Major national and international scholastic awards have consistently recognized research conducted by this consultant, with papers being cited thousands of times in peer reviewed literature.

This consultant offers specific expertise relative to tailoring GTA weld attributes and improving reliability of heat transfer and materials flow calculations during gas tungsten arc and friction stir welding. Other areas of this consultant's expertise include modeling of heat transfer and free surface flow in gas metal arc fillet welding, computer modeling for welding engineers to achieve defect free, structurally sound, and reliable welds. Weld pool heat transfer and fluid flow in probing weldment characteristics, computer modeling and understanding the science of welding, mathematical modeling of fluid flow and heat transfer in fusion welding are areas in which this expert has extensive knowledge. Also, this expert has experience related to porosity and alloying element loss during laser welding of 5754 aluminum alloy, experimental and numerical investigation of transport phenomena in conduction mode weld pools, and nitrogen dissolution in the weld metal. This expert has high interest in role of interfacial phenomena in numerical analysis of weldability, mass transfer in welding, and more.
