Congratulations to Jaryd Traer who has successfully defended his masters thesis on “High Fidelity Additive Manufacturing Process Modelling for Residual Stress and Deformation”. Jaryd has contributed heavily to the SMSD group and will be missed. We wish you success in your future endeavours!
Congratulations to Rubens Bohrer, Kevin Conklin, Luke Crispo, and Evan Munroe on joining the SMSD lab!
Rubens is pursuing his PhD in SMSD, he received his MASc at Instituto Tecnológico de Aeronáutica and spent 5 years as a development engineer at Embraer S.A..
Kevin, Luke, and Evan all earned their BASc at Queen’s Applied Science in mechanical engineering, and have decided to continue their studies as MASc students in SMSD.
Congratulations Stephen on receiving the Brass Wrench Award for the second year in a row! “Brass Wrench” Teaching Assistant Award, selected by fourth year mechanical engineering students for outstanding contribution to MECH 465.
Congratulations Daozhong on your publication of “Multi-material topology optimization for practical lightweight design” in Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization!
The publication can be found here: http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s00158-018-1953-z
Congratulations to Luke Ryan and Christopher Woischwill who have both successfully defended their masters theses on “Finite Element Analysis of Nanometal-Polymer Hybrids with Experimental Validation“ and “Large Scale Topology Optimization”. Luke and Chris have both made great contributions to the lab in their time spent in the SMSD group. We wish you all the best with your future endeavours!
Dr. Kim and the members from the SMSD lab would like to congratulate one of our new alumni Christopher Woischwill on starting his career at General Motors Canada!
Chris, we are positive that you will be an excellent addition to the GM team. You have done a fine job in SMSD for many years and sure deserve the position in new job that they are giving you. Congratulations, it will be a great experience for you!
SMSD would like to welcome our newest member Jack Olsen. Jack will be completing his Master’s Degree under the supervision of Dr. Kim.
Best of luck over the next 2 years!
Dr. Kim has recently been featured in Automotive News Canada for his and his groups contribution to automotive research!
A big congratulations to SMSD alumnus, Dr. Li and Dr. Kim for their newest journal paper publication in Automotive Engineering. Dr. Li and Dr. Kim developed algorithms for multi-material topology optimization considering compliance minimization problems for automotive applications. Be sure to check out the latest issue of Automotive Engineering for a great read of the paper.
Dr. Kim and SMSD are thrilled to announce that the current collaboration with General Motors Canada will be expanding into a suite of new research topics. Look forward to new focus in topics including design optimization, topology optimization, lightweight design, multi-material design, large-scale optimization, and parts integration over the coming years of the research collaboration.
