Schematic measurement setup. Specimen (parallelepiped) is clamped loosely between two piezoelectric transducers. One transducer is swept through frequency. The second transducer detects macroscopic resonance frequencies, which depend on specimen shape, size, mass, and elastic-stiffness coefficients, the \(C_{ij}\).IMAGE SOURCE

Undergrad School Research - Elastic Characterization of Metal Alloys using Parallelepipeds

We manifactured parallelpipeds of different metal alloy to test their elastic properties.

Professor Gabriela Petculescu was recently awarded a grant to determine aging of Navy ships.
