Endel Iarve, Ph.D.

Professor , UTA MAE and UTARI Institute for Predictive Performance Methodologies

Group: Research / Institute for Predictive Performance Methodologies



Endel Iarve has joined the newly established Institute of Predictive Performance Methodology at University of Texas at Arlington. His research focuses on discrete damage modeling methodologies for laminated composites under a broad range of loading conditions, including compression and fatigue. He also focuses on integrated computational materials science and engineering which brings together manufacturing and performance aspects of advanced composite materials.

Among his achievements, Iarve was awarded the Exceptional Performance Award and the Wohllenben/Hochwalt Professional awards from UDRI. Iarve also works in collaboration with the NASA Langly Research Center and the Skolkovo Institute of Technology in Moscow. He has been a speaker and panel participant at numerous national and international workshops and universities including UTA, SAMPE, the Conference on Composites Testing and Model Identification, the Conference of Advances in Multiscale Modeling of Composite Materials Systems and Components, the Strength and Prediction of Composite Bolted Joints and the Advisory Group for Aerospace Research & Development Structures and Materials Panel.

Iarve received his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering at St. Petersburg University in Russia. He received his M.S. and B.S. at Latvian State University, Latvia. Iarve’s recent position was as a professor for the School of Engineering where he also held the title of distinguished research engineer and group leader for Advanced Composites-Analytics at the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI).
