Congratulations to Deniz Oztürk! He has been selected as one of the finalists for the 2020 Melosh Competition. Since 1989, the Robert J. Melosh Medal Competition has provided a forum for young engineers and researchers to present their work to and interact with leaders in the field of computational mechanics. Deniz will be presenting his work on “Uncertainty Quantification in Multi-Scale Modeling of Titanium Alloys” at the competition on October 23rd, 2020 which is being held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Deniz joined CMRL in 2013 as a graduate student and successfully defended his thesis titled “Multi-scale Modeling and Uncertainty Quantification of Deformation and Fatigue Crack Nucleation in Titanium Alloys using Parametrically Homogenized Constitutive Models” on July 19th, 2019.
