2001 NSF Design, Service & Manufacturing Grantees & Research Conference Faculty Presentations

Five faculty members from the Department of Mechanical Engineering presented posters at the 2001 National Science Foundation's Design, Service & Manufacturing Grantees & Research Conference, held January 7-10 in Tampa, Florida. In addition, they had papers published in the conference proceedings.

The Conference featured current research relating to design and manufacturing and was a forum for representatives of academe, industry, and government to meet and share results of existing research programs and to influence the direction of future research and engineering curricula. The Conference provided a focused gathering of the best design and manufacturing research in North America. Participants were afforded a truly unique opportunity to discuss with researchers the leading edge work that is being pursued.

Below are the faculty and their paper titles:
