Ben is a MASc student in the Department of Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Waterloo. After receiving his Bachelors of Technology (B.Tech) in Automotive and Vehicle Engineering Technology from the Faculty of Engineering at McMaster University in 2019 he joined the Composites Research Group. Under the supervision of Professor John Montesano and Professor Michael Worswick, Ben’s research involves testing of CFRP components, including axial crush and bending tests, with different geometries, layups, and testing conditions for the purpose of model verification of an FEA model (LS-DYNA).
Title of Research:
Axial Crush and Bending Testing of CFRP for Impact Model Verification (LS-DYNA)
