The research produced accomplishments. and new findings in the areas of thermomechanics and stability of materials with temperature-dependent density, characterization of pesticide spray solutions in agriculture and polymer solutions and melts in manufacturing, criteria for admissible forms of non-Newtonian viscosity for flows with low strain rates, modeling of industrial filament manufacturing processes, modeling fiber drawing and belt power transmission, material characterization in high strain-rate plasticity, and modeling of foam generation and flow. As an outgrowth of the research, the PI has collaborated with Prof. Palazotto of AFIT in two AFRLDAGSI proposals, in response to topics generated by the Air Vehicle Directorate of WPAFB. One past the first cut and is currently being considered for funding.
