Abstract : The research projects described herein derived computational support from a color graphics workstation provided to the University of New Mexico, Department of Mechanical Engineering, through all equipment grant under the Infrastructure Support Program for Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority Institutions (HBCU/MI's). The project topics, faculty investigator and support include: (1) Finite element modeling of suspension flows, Prof Marc Ingber; (2) Finite element simulations of failure mechanisms in quasi-brittle materials and fiber-reinforced ceramics, Prof Howard L. Schreyer; AFOSR Grants 91-0419 and F49620-95-1-0262; (3) Dynamical system predictions and measurements of turbulent shear flows for the study of optical propagation through turbulence, such as occurs in aero-optics problems; Prof. C. Randall Truman, AFOSR Grants 91-0071 and F49620-94-1-0140. Details on the publications, personnel supported and interactions may be obtained from the technical reports for each grant.
