Hareesh V. Tippur, alumni professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Auburn University, will present, "Dynamic Mixed-mode Fracture Behavior of Functionally Graded Materials," on Tuesday, Sept. 16, at 3 p.m. in 104 Textile Building. Tippur will discuss observed crack paths, speed and intensity factor variations between two configurations. He will also examine mixed-mode dynamic crack growth behavior in a compositionally graded particle-filled polymer. His lecture is hosted by the Department of Polymer and Fiber Engineering.
