Aerosol Technology Research Group
The University of Denver Aerosol Group develops and builds instruments and sampling inlets that we and other groups then use to study aerosols. Most of our measurements are made from aircraft platforms. Aerosols are collections of particles suspended in gas. The atmospheric aerosol comes from natural processes and human activities.
Center for Orthopaedic Biomechanics
The Center for Orthopaedic Biomechanics applies engineering principles to investigate clinically relevant issues. Using a combination of experimental and computational tools, the Center performs research in joint mechanics, human motion, musculoskeletal modeling, modeling fluid-solid interactions, wearable sensor systems, implant device testing, heart valve engineering and the Biomechanics of trauma.
- Computational Biomechanics Lab
- Human Dynamics Lab
- Probabilistic Mechanics Lab
- Biofluids Lab
- Biomaterials and Testing
- Cardiac Biomechanics Lab
The faculty is committed to student experiences at all levels: undergraduate, MS, PhD and post-doctoral fellows. Graduate students within the program can complete the PhD in Mechanical Engineering and MS in Mechanical Engineering or Bioengineering degrees.
Center for Nanoscale Science and Engineering
The center was established in 2007 to conduct nano-science related research between several departments of the University of Denver. To learn more contact Dr. Maciej Kumosa.
- Conduct state-of-the-art research in the area of nanoscience and nanoengineering.
- Offer state-of-the-art undergraduate and graduate education in the above area.
- The Center will create a forum for major research interactions among researchers from several departments at DU.
- Will provide strong "moral support" for junior faculty
Center for Advanced Materials and Structures
This center was established in 1996 to conduct collaborative research between the Departments of Engineering, Physics & Astronomy, and Chemistry & Biochemistry. Between 1996 and the present, the Center has graduated 7 PhDs and several Master students. Approximately 70 major journal publications have been published based on research performed by the Center. The Center has been heavily supported by the National Science Foundation, Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the NASA Glenn Research Center, the Electric Power Research Institute, and various US electric utilities.
