College of Engineering Distinguished Speaker Series

3:30 pm

Robert O. Ritchie, member of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering and Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in the UK, will present “Bioinspired Structural Materials” from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Monday, November 1 in the McArthur Engineering Annex, Room MEA 202. Ritchie is known for his research in the mechanics and micromechanisms of fracture and fatigue in a broad range of structural and biological materials. Ritchie’s presentation will focus on the development of bulk ceramic-polymer nacre/bone-like structural materials of unprecedented strength, possibly representing the highest ceramic toughness reported to date. For more information, call 305-284-2908 or e-mail [email protected].
