Dr. C. Nataraj, Mechanical Engineering professor and director of the Villanova Center for Analytics of Dynamic Systems, and Professor and Department Chair Dr. Sridhar Santhanam, have completed phase one of an industry-sponsored project to economize and reduce the time consumption of fatigue testing, the method by which aircraft companies test aircraft parts under varying loads to determine structural stability.
The seven-week Engineering Entrepreneurship Summer Institute (E2SI) culminates in student teams presenting their products and services to an audience of would-be investors.
Significant changes are underway in Villanova University’s Department of Chemical Engineering. Intended to reflect the changing nature of chemical engineering in industry and meet the demands of constituents, the department will undergo a name change and change in the course curriculum.
Three Villanova College of Engineering projects were among the 26 funded through the Manufacturing PA initiative. With faculty as the principle investigators, the program embeds graduate and undergraduate students with local manufacturers, where they embark on research projects to develop new technologies and advance innovation.
Climate change is radically altering the physical environment in the theater of conflict, making future military successes dependent on adaptation today. New research shows that climate change is reducing performance of military aircraft. Dr. Mary McRae, a PhD graduate of Villanova’s Sustainable Engineering program, has developed a vulnerability assessment model that predicts the frequency and severity of climate-related performance impacts for both airbases and aircraft.
