Design, Manufacturing and Systems

DEMS pic

The Design, Manufacturing, and Systems (DEMS) area encompasses the study of design through manufacturing.

Design focus areas include computer-aided design, mechatronics, design for manufacturing, dynamics and vibrations of mechanical systems, vibrations of continuous systems, cable dynamics, finite element modeling, modal testing, model updating, structural damage detection, system identification, wind energy, energy harvesting, design optimization, product design and development, and medical device design and manufacturing.

Manufacturing focus areas include traditional and non-traditional manufacturing processes, manufacturing processes in dental and medical practices, computer-aided manufacturing, multibody system dynamics, control systems, kinematics, compliant mechanisms, robotics, electro-mechanical systems, manufacturing systems, and production systems.

There are five faculty members who have primary research specialization in Design, Manufacturing, and Systems.

Focus Areas:  Advanced manufacturing processes, mechatronics, mechanical design, dynamics, vibrations, controls, robotics, energy harvesting, and design optimization.
