Areas of expertise
Dr. Caccese has
expertise in structural mechanics with current emphasis on design
innovations using metal, composite and polymer materials. His current research
interests are in the structural response of metal and composite materials,
connections in hybrid composite/metal structures, and fatigue life in
connections. Several ongoing projects include:
impact resistant systems for protection against head injury
of welded connections.
inflatable structures including wireless sensing systems, astronaut
protection systems and hyperbaric chamber.
