Multiscale Uncertainty Quantification in Solid Mechanics Using a Posteriori Error-estimation Techniques with Applications to Process-structure-performance Modeling of Laser-welded and Additively-manufactured Structures
Joe Bishop received his Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering from Texas A&M University in 1996. His graduate research was in the general areas of the mechanics of composite materials and the mechanisms and mechanics of material damping. From 1997 to 2004 he worked in the Synthesis & Analysis Department of the Powertrain Division of General Motors Corporation, performing thermal-structural analysis of internal combustion engines with a focus on predicting high-cycle fatigue performance of the base engine. He joined Sandia National Laboratories in 2004 in the Engineering Sciences Center. He has worked on diverse topics such as impact and penetration, pervasive fracture modeling, and geologic CO2 sequestration. His current research interests include multiscale modeling in support of additive manufacturing, experimental methods and computational techniques for determining residual-stress fields, polyhedral finite-element formulations and applications, and second-generation wavelets.
