Cities/Counties/State/Federal engineering projects (a.k.a. civil engineers)
St. Ambrose engineers work in these areas:
I work on a team to develop and implement new supply planning software for the plant. This software allows users to launch metal to meet downstream material needs for automotive customers and soon-to-be aerospace customers.
"My current research involves using discrete element analysis to computationally assess contact stress in hip dysplasia patients before and after corrective hip surgery. I plan to investigate the relationship between joint contact in various hip deformities and clinical outcomes (pain scores, etc.). This quantitative information can be used to assist orthopedic surgeons in their pre-operative planning, which in turn can help improve patient outcomes."
"Forces and other mechanical signals affect the behavior of cells and tissues in living creatures. I am working on designing devices that allow me to study how cells and tissues respond to applied stresses and strains. I plan on investigating the mechanisms behind the formation of scar tissue at neural device implantation sites in the brain."
"I program industrial robots to perform Non Destructive Inspection on composite aerospace parts. Some other processes we automate with the integration of robots are shearography, laser ablation, ultrasonic welding inspections, and material handling."
