Research Interests

Fused layer modeling (FLM) is a low cost, high flexibility method of additive manufacturing that can be used to create production quality parts with acceptable properties. By compounding traditional FLM materials with thermally conductive fillers, parts can be made for heat-critical applications, such as heat sinks and heat exchangers.

These filled materials will be used to fabricate heat exchangers for air-cooled power plants, taking into consideration the material cost, the production cost, the realizable heat transfer rate, the pressure drop, the watertightness, and the mechanical properties.
