Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Composite material
  • Optics
  • Mechanical engineering

His scientific interests lie mostly in Aerodynamics, Wing, Micro air vehicle, Aerospace engineering and Aeroelasticity. The concepts of his Aerodynamics study are interwoven with issues in Control engineering and Adaptive control. His research investigates the link between Wing and topics such as Wing twist that cross with problems in Stall.

Micro air vehicle is a subfield of Structural engineering that Peter Ifju studies. His Aeroelasticity study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Stiffness and Control theory. The Digital image correlation study which covers Strain gauge that intersects with Optics and Moiré pattern.

His most cited work include:

  • High Sensitivity Moiré (485 citations)
  • High Sensitivity Moiré: Experimental Analysis for Mechanics and Materials (406 citations)
  • Vision-guided flight stability and control for micro air vehicles (166 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Peter Ifju mainly focuses on Wing, Composite material, Structural engineering, Aerodynamics and Digital image correlation. His studies deal with areas such as Lift and Aeroelasticity as well as Wing. Peter Ifju studied Structural engineering and Wind tunnel that intersect with Stall.

He has researched Aerodynamics in several fields, including Airfoil, Drag and Optimal design. His Digital image correlation research is under the purview of Optics. His research in Aerospace engineering intersects with topics in Aeronautics, Automotive engineering and Vortex.

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary scientific interests are in Digital image correlation, Composite material, Structural engineering, Deflection and Optics. His research integrates issues of Shape-memory polymer, Actuator, Deformation, Modulus and Anisotropy in his study of Digital image correlation. His Structural engineering study focuses mostly on Finite element method, Micro air vehicle, Pure bending and Wing.

His Wing study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Control engineering and Uncertainty quantification. His study in Optics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Surface and Contact area. His work deals with themes such as Flapping wing and Thrust, which intersect with Aerodynamics.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Experimental characterization of the mechanical properties of 3D-printed ABS and polycarbonate parts (160 citations)
  • Meeting the Contact-Mechanics Challenge (144 citations)
  • Experimental flapping wing optimization and uncertainty quantification using limited samples (29 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Composite material
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Optics

His main research concerns Composite material, Material properties, Ultimate tensile strength, Digital image correlation and Shear modulus. His Composite material research incorporates themes from Finite element method and Machining. Finite element method is a subfield of Structural engineering that Peter Ifju tackles.

His Material properties research includes themes of Modulus and Shear. His Digital image correlation study deals with the bigger picture of Optics. Peter Ifju combines subjects such as Tensile testing, Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene and Universal testing machine with his study of Shear modulus.
