Rapid Evaluation of Energy Absorbing Materials for Head Borne Impact Protection

John Weber, PhD

Senior Engineer, Advanced Engineering Group

Gentex Corporation


As researchers continue to improve our understanding of the factors contributing to Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) due to blunt impacts to the head, the protective helmets used to prevent these injuries must adapt to evolving performance requirements. A critical factor in the impact performance of any helmet system is the material composing the energy absorbing (EA) liner. There are a plethora of existing EA materials and new materials are continuously being synthesize and marketed for use in EA liners. Evaluating EA materials to find the optimal material can be resource intensive both in terms of time and cost with no guarantee of performance improvement. This talk will detail the finite element analysis performed to address this problem as well as the parallel physical testing used for validation.

Smart Manufacturing @ Rutgers: Leveraging Data Science to Transform Advanced Manufacturing

Dr. Yuebin Guo

Henry Rutgers Professor in Advanced Manufacturing

NJ Advanced Manufacturing Institute

Rutgers University School of Engineering


Data science provides compelling challenges and opportunities for advanced manufacturing in every dimension. This talk has two parts. Part I will provide an overview of our work in manufacturing process development, surface integrity, and functionality. Then, the unprecedented challenges imposed by artificial intelligence (e.g. machine learning) to advanced manufacturing are highlighted. In addition, a few  case studies are introduced  to illustrate the great opportunities for data analytics to transform physical manufacturing processes. Part II present a vision on smart manufacturing at the New Jersey Advanced Manufacturing Institute.

September Meeting

Additive Manufacturing Using Thermosetting Polymers

Dr. Giuseppe R. Palmese

Professor of Chemical Engineering

Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering

Drexel University


Additive manufacturing (AM) manufacturing of thermosetting polymers will be discussed in this presentation.  AM can be used to produce intricate highly customized and complex parts competitively for small volume applications. AM technologies have the potential to transform the manufacturing industry by enabling mass customization, improving supply chain efficiency, reducing time to market, and fostering environmental sustainability. Following a brief review of AM methods for thermosets, current work in our laboratory regarding the development of new resin systems will be presented.  The design of these materials focuses on obtaining systems with high Tg, high fracture toughness, and significant bio-based content.
