Research and Expertise

  • Summary

    Dr. Andrew Makeev joined the University of Texas Arlington (UTA) at the rank of Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering in 2011.  Prior to joining UTA Dr. Makeev was an Assistant Professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), and the principal engineer for Risk Analysis at Delta Air Lines.  Dr. Makeev is the Director of the Advanced Materials and Structures Lab (AMSL- http://www.uta.edu/mae/AMSL.) 

    Dr. Makeev’s expertise encompasses composite and metallic materials, structural methods, prognostics and reliability.  He received awards from AIAA, Sigma XI Scientific Research Society, Georgia Tech and Delta Air Lines.  His research accomplishments are recognized internationally.  He received the best paper award at the 36th European Rotorcraft Forum, and that was the first time such an award was given to authors based in the United States.  Dr. Makeev was also invited as a Distinguished Speaker at Agusta Westland, Beijing Institute of Technology, and Huazhong University of Science and Technology.

    Dr. Makeev focuses on the implementation of innovative advanced materials and structures research tools to industrial applications.  He leads the Vertical Lift Consortium (VLC) Advanced Materials Technology (AMT) Technical Area of Joint Interest (TAJI) Program.  Team members of the VLC AMT TAJI include all major US rotorcraft manufacturers: Bell Helicopters, Boeing, Kaman Aerospace, Sikorsky, and two universities: UTA and Penn State University. 

    Dr. Makeev serves on the American Helicopter Society (AHS) Structures Committee; the AHS Manufacturing Committee; and the American Society for Testing and Materials E08 Fatigue and Fracture Committee, E08.04.04 Variability, Statistics, and Probabilistic Modeling Task Group.  The impact and innovation of his work have been recently highlighted in “Composite Structures, A View from Inside,” in the ONR Innovation Newsletter, Breakthrough Technologies, Volume 10, 2013, pp. 32-35.
