Endel Iarve

Name

[Iarve, Endel]
  • Professor, Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering

Biography

Career research is focused on understanding and computational modeling of deformation and failure mechanisms of current and emerging composite materials. In the 80-90’s Iarve was one of the pioneers of application of B-spline approximation to stress analysis in laminated composites including dynamic problems and impact loading. Research areas included refined plate and shell theories, biomimetics, composite repair, composite bolted joints, chopped fiber composites and textile composites. Recent research interests are in the area of Integrated Computational Materials Science and Engineering bringing together manufacturing and performance aspects of advanced composite materials. Recent developments include Discrete Damage Modeling methodologies for laminated composites under broad range of loading conditions including compression and fatigue. He is a member of ASME, AIAA and American Society for Composites. Dr. Iarve served on the ASME Joining Committee including Chair position 2008-2010.

Courses

      • ME 5310-005 FINITE ELEMENT METHOD

        Finite element method in the study of the static response of structures and of continua; applications to field problems; analytical methods emphasized, and digital computer application undertaken.

        After the completion of the course the student is expected to understand the basics of the finite element method, element development, FEM methodology, and be able to perform FE analysis of simple elastic problems, including evaluation of the solution accuracy.
