  • Advanced Manufacturing Seminar

    Fri, Apr 16, 2021 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Denis Cormier, Earl W. Brinkman Professor, Rochester Institute of Technology

    Talk Title: Metal Additive Manufacturing Via Jetting of Molten Metal Droplets

    Abstract: This seminar will introduce attendees to an emerging metal additive manufacturing process that produces parts via on-demand jetting of molten metal droplets. Unlike traditional metal additive manufacturing processes such as powder bed fusion or binder jetting, the droplet jetting process uses wire, rather than powder, as the feedstock material. This greatly reduces cost and safety concerns. The absence of a powder bed also reduces feedstock carrying costs and eliminates complicated lot tracing procedures associated with blending of new and used powders. Process parameters such as drop size, jetting temperature, drop spacing, and jetting frequency all influence the dimensional accuracy, density, and mechanical properties of fabricated parts. An open architecture droplet jetting machine from Xerox (formerly Vader Systems) is used to demonstrate the influence of both process parameters and toolpath generation strategies on geometric accuracy, density, and microstructure of aluminum alloys.

    Biography: Dr. Denis Cormier is the Earl W. Brinkman Professor of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology where he directs the New York State funded AMPrint Center for Advanced Technology. Dr. Cormier has worked in the area of 3D printing and additive manufacturing for 25 years. Since joining RIT in 2009, his research has focused on technologies such as multi-material inkjet deposition, direct-write processes including aerosol printing and microdispensing, and pulsed photonic sintering. Most recently, he has focused on development of a liquid metal droplet jetting additive manufacturing process. Prior to joining RIT, he was a professor at North Carolina State University from 1994 to 2009.

  • Astani Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering Seminar

    Fri, Apr 16, 2021 @ 04:00 PM - 05:00 PM

    Sonny Astani Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. Joe F. Bozeman III, University of Illinois at Chicago

    Talk Title: Strengthening Social-Inclusivity in Civil and Environmental Systems: Cases for Food-Energy-Water Equity and Applications to the Built Environment

    Abstract:
    Matters of racial/ethnic and socioeconomic equity have not always been a central feature of food-energy-water studies. I have begun to address this gap in research by developing and employing innovative methodology in collaboration with cross-disciplinary scientists. The associated studies show that land, greenhouse gas, and water food consumption impacts vary in statistically significant ways across U.S. Black, Latinx, and White populations. Furthermore, these study methods and findings have tangible application to future studies around the world as well as global environmental degradation implications. Join me to learn more about the details and how my future research directions can be applied to the built environment.

    Biography:
    Dr. Joe F. Bozeman III originally hails from Dayton, Ohio. His Ph.D. is from the University of Illinois at Chicago UIC in Civil Engineering. His work has been featured in major outlets and won several awards such as the 2020 Publication Excellence in Environmental Engineering Science award, 2018-2019 Top Downloaded Paper honors, with media features in Popular Science, the Geographical Magazine, and NPR among others. Dr. Bozeman has spent more than a decade working in the private and public sectors on energy and environmental sustainability matters and serves as a postdoctoral Research Associate for UIC's Institute for Environmental Science and Policy.
