Associate Dean at College of Engineering

Dr. Aswath has over twenty five years of experience in the area of processing of advanced materials that include monolithic and composite materials. In addition he has over 20 years of experience in the area of deformation, fatigue and fracture of specialty engineering materials. His work in the area of synthesis of materials involves the design of new materials using fundamental concepts in chemistry, thermodynamics and material science. 

He is currently working with Rebirth Partners and The State of Texas on a major initiative to develop a new class of environmentally friendly high performance lubricant additives for internal combustion engines and high load bearing lubrication application. Dr. Aswath has been also been  working with various automotive OEM’s such as General Motors, Ford Motor Company and Nissan Motors, Oil and Grease additive companies such as Exxon-Mobil, Chevron-Oronite, Ciba Specialty Chemicals, Afton, Lubrizol, DuPont Chemicals, DOW Chemicals,  RT Vanderbilt, and Whitmores and National Labs such as Argonne National Labs , AC2T (Wiener-Neusdtadt in Austria)  and LTDS (Ecole Centrale de Lyon).

A second major initiative that Dr. Aswath is currently involved in is the development of biocompatible materials for applications ranging from structural orthopedic, tissue regeneration and drug delivery applications. These projects involve active collaboration with faculty in the Bioengineering Department and have resulted in the development of 3D porous degradable polymeric scaffolds for drug delivery applications, ceramic scaffolds for smooth muscle cell culture and porous scaffolds for tissue engineering. In addition, scaffolds for drug delivery applications have been developed. In an related initiative Dr. Aswath is examining the processing and evaluation of a new generation Bioglass/Polymer composite for orthopedic application. In addition he is examining new methods to coat hydroxyapatite and Bioglass on Ti substrates for improved fixation with bone. More recently studies have focussed on the development of devices with thermoresponsive hydrogels for drug delivery applications. A fundamental study involving the mechanism of bone remodeling the focus of some current studies. Several aspects of this project are collaborative efforts with faculty in bioengineering, mechanical engineering, Baylor college of Dentistry and Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.

A third major initiative is in the development of sustainable concrete for structural and transportation applications. This involves the use of recycled tire materials as replacement for both coarse and fine aggregates in concrete. The finished product exhibits properties equal to or  better than traditional concrete with the simultaneous use of recycled materials that would otherwise find their way into landfills. An additional area of interest is in the development of concrete reinforced with bamboo for applications where steel reinforcements are unavailable. This area of research has been a collaborative effort with faculty in Civil engineering.

In the past he has been involved in the development and evaluation of a new generation of titanium aluminides for jet engine applications. He has worked extensively in synthesis, phase transformations and mechanical properties of in-situ Si3N4 reinforced barium aluminosilicate in collaboration with Loral Corp (Lockheed Martin Corporation). A research program evaluating the role of processing variables on the electrical and mechanical properties of Blackglas™ matrix composites with  Nicalon™ and Nextel™ fibers was completed in collaboration with Allied Signal and Vought Aircraft Company. He has also completed NSF sponsored project to study the effects of silica additions on the creep and fracture properties of alumina based ceramics. In addition he has worked in microstructural stability and oxidation characteristics of high temperature intermetallics. Dr. Aswath has worked closely with McDonnell Douglas Research Labs, Oak Ridge National Labs, ALCOA Research Labs, Vought Corp., Loral Vought Corp., MCI Telecommunications, National Oilwell, General Dynamics, ,Lockheed Fort. Worth Company, Allied Signal and MULCOA Research Labs on research projects. He has also worked on research projects with faculty in Ohio State University, Brown University, University of Trento, Ecole Centrale de Lyon  and Indian Institute of Science among others.

MSE 5315 - Fatigue of Materials
Fatigue failures occur in many ways. Fluctuations in externally applied stresses or strains results in mechanical fatigue. Cyclic loads associated with high temperatures cause creep-fatigue. When both temperature and load fluctuate we have thermo-mechanical fatigue. Cyclic loading in a corrosive media causes corrosion fatigue. The course aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the fatigue process in materials and should appeal to a wide audience. This course will employ theoretical and practical examples. An understanding of the fatigue mechanisms can help us to answer some of the following questions 1) Why does fatigue occur? 2) How can we understand the development of damage due to fatigue? 3) What is the mechanism of fatigue crack growth? 4) How can we design components to minimize fatigue failures?
