Prof. Spear recently gave two invited talks: one in Texas and one in Spain.

On October 3rd, Spear visited Texas A&M in College Station to give an invited seminar entitled A Multiscale, Multiphysics Modeling Framework to Predict Spatial Variation of Properties in Additive-Manufactured Metals.  The work is a collaboration with Prof. Wenda Tan (Utah) and Prof. Tony Rollett (Carnegie Mellon University). MMM Lab member Carl Herriott is leading the research effort.tam-stack

On October 11th, Spear gave an invited talk at the Society of Engineering Science (SES) conference in Madrid, Spain. Her talk was entitled Multiscale Characterization and Modeling of 3D Crack Propagation in Polycrystalline Materials.  The work is a collaboration with Prof. John Allison at the University of Michigan.  MMM Lab member Brian Phung is leading the modeling effort.
