Faculty

Scott Case

Professor and Interim Department Head of Engineering Science and Mechanics


Interests

Professor Case's current research interests are focused in the area of life prediction techniques for composite materials, as well as in the experimental characterization of elevated temperature polymeric composites. In support of the life prediction techniques, he has worked heavily in the area of micromechanical modeling of composite behavior. In the past, Professor Case has also been involved in the modeling of "smart" material systems.
