Name

[Adnan, Ashfaq]
  • Associate Professor

Biography

Dr. Adnan is an associate professor in the Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering Department at UTA. He earned his PhD in Aeronautics & Astronautics Engineering from Purdue University in 2008. Before joining UTA in the Fall of 2010, he was a postdoctoral research associate at Northwestern University. His current research and teaching interests encompass solid mechanics, materials science, and nano-bio mechanics. The core focus of his research group is to study mechanical and physical behavior of materials at multiple length scales in order to develop high performance structural materials. 

His ongoing research activities include:

1. Cavitation-induced damage in brains ECM and Axon (Supported by ONR)

2. Toughening ceramics via multiscale material desgin (suppported by NSF)

3. Mechanics of additively manufactured materials and structures (supported by Stratasys/America Makes)

News Articles

    • Feb 2016 Engineering researcher wins Naval Research support to measure when and how battlefield blasts injure brain neurons

      A University of Texas at Arlington engineering researcher supported by the Office of Naval Research is developing a computational model to measure how and when battlefield blasts can cause devastating damage to neurons in the brain.

      Ashfaq Adnan, an assistant professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, will measure the blasts on a computer, then forward that information to partners at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington D.C., which will then use Adnan’s data and compare it to existing soldiers’ data. The work is supported by a three-year, $386,586 grant through the ONR’s Warfighter Performance Department and UTA. - See more at: http://www.uta.edu/news/releases/2016/02/ashfaq-adnan-ONR.php#sthash.OtwjfY80.dpuf

    • Aug 2005 6934600:2005  Nanotube FiberReinforced Composite Materials and Method of Producing Fiber Reinforced Composites

      A composite composition and a method of making such a composite that is composed of a matrix material and dispersed reinforcement nanotubes that are substantially aligned along at least one specified direction or axis. Also a method for making a continuous fiber-reinforced composite object by combining a reinforcement fiber tow with a solidifying matrix material to form a pre-impregnated tow or towpreg, providing a dispensing head capable of dispensing the towpreg onto a base member positioned a distance from this head with the head and base member being driven by motion devices electronically connected to a motion controller regulated by a computer, and operating and moving the head relative to the base member to dispense multiple layers of towpreg in accordance with a CAD-generated deposition path along which the dispensing head can be allowed to trace out individual layers by following a selected algorithm so that the number of path interruptions at which the towpreg must be tentatively cut off from the dispensing head is minimized.
