Fleming Receives ORAU’s Powe Research Grant

Congratulations to Dr. Robert (Drew) Fleming, assistant professor of mechanical engineering, who has received a Ralph E. Powe Junior  Faculty Enhancement Award from the Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) Consortium. In his research, he is using high-performance computing (HPC) resources to perform molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of nanostructures under compression loading. His goal is to control the dynamics of dislocations in nanostructures in order to design materials with enhanced mechanical properties.
