Chad M. Landis

Professor, Department Associate Chair

T. U. Taylor Professorship in Engineering

Department Research Areas:
Solids, Structures and Materials

Ph.D., 1999, University of California at Santa Barbara

Research Interests:

  • Mechanics of materials
  • Ferroelectrics
  • Ferromagnetic shape memory alloys
  • Fracture Mechanics
  • Continuum thermodynamics
  • Computational Mechanics

 Dr. Landis' research focuses on continuum modeling and numerical simulation of the mechanical, electrical, magnetic and thermal behavior of materials. His specific interests are on active/smart materials such as ferroelectrics and ferromagnetic shape memory alloys. He also has a broad range of interests in the mechanics of materials, including fracture mechanics, plasticity, micromechanics, composites, and finite element methods. He joined the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics in the spring 2007 semester.
