Truster receives NSF CAREER Award

Timothy Truster was selected as a recipient of 2018 NSF CAREER award from the Mechanics of Materials and Structures for the proposal entitled “Predictive Fatigue Behavior of Structural Materials Through Computationally-Informed Textural and Microstructural Influences.” This research aims to discover how grain interactions in polycrystalline structural materials influence the distribution of local stresses that drive fatigue crack nucleation and growth, thereby reducing the uncertainty of why cracks form where they do.

More information about the project will be posted on the Research page.
