Rob Shaheen presented his thesis seminar

Rob Shaheen, under the supervision of Dr. Marc Doumit, presented his thesis seminar last Friday. The title of his talk was “Design and material characterization of a nonlinear, hyperelastic tubular soft composite”.  Well done, Rob!


Bochun Zhang presented his research seminar

Last Friday featured a graduate seminar by my own MASc candidate,Bochun Zhang. Bochun gave a talk titled “Failure Mechanism Analysis and Life Prediction based on Atmospheric Plasma-Sprayed (APS) and Electron Beam-Physical Vapor Deposition (EB-PVD) Thermal Barrier Coatings”.  Bochun’s primary supervisor was Dr. Kuiying Chen, from Canada’s National Research Council, and I was the cosupervisor. Unfortunately, Dr. Chen could not attend, but I’m sure he would have been as proud of Bochun as I was! Well done, Bochun.
