Student working on a research project.

Viscoelastic Response In 3D Printed Photopolymers

This project involves the characterization of the the viscoelastic, or time-dependent, response in 3D printed photopolymers. This opportunity will include exposure to engineering standards for materials testing and experimental design. Students will fabricate test fixtures in the Engineering Machine Shop, and run dynamic testing on selected samples in the materials lab. Experimentally determined material properties will be used in an appropriate simulation software to verify accuracy.
