ADVANCED COMPUTATIONAL MECHANICS LABORATORY

Professor Reddy’s Advanced Computational Mechanics Laboratory (ACML) at Texas A&M University is dedicated to state-of-the-art research in the development of novel mathematical models and numerical simulation of physical phenomena.

Over the years, Professor Reddy and his group have made significant contributions in the following topic areas and many of them now hold faculty and industrial positions across the world:

•   Refined theories of laminated composite plates and shells (the third-order laminate theory and the layerwise theory),
•   Analytical solutions of the refined theories of laminated composite plates and shells ,
•   Finite element analysis of plate and shell structures composed of functionally graded materials, fiber-reinforced composite material layers, and adaptive/smart structures ,
•   Static bending, natural vibration, general buckling, transient, and damage analyses of plate and shell structures,
•   Penalty finite element models of viscous, incompressible,
Newtonian and non- Newtonian fluid flow problems, Least-squares finite element models of viscous, incompressible,
•    Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluid flow problems as well as plate and shell structures,
•   Multi-scale modeling of Carbon Nano Tube (CNT)-reinforced and functionalized composites and biological cells,
•   Well-received textbooks on applied mathematics, variational methods, the finite element method, and laminated composite plates and shells.
