Dr. Yannis Korkolis joins ISE faculty in the area of manufacturing
Dr. Yannis Korkolis is joining the Department of Integrated Systems Engineering in January 2019 as an Associate Professor in the area of Manufacturing.
Dr. Korkolis’ research is at the interface of constitutive modeling, formability and ductile fracture, and manufacturing processes. He has worked on constitutive modeling of advanced aluminum alloys, formability and failure prediction, microforming, modeling of machining operations, sheet metal forming, continuous-bending-under-tension and pulsed tube hydroforming. His particular approach involves multiaxial experiments, oftentimes using unique, custom-built equipment, combined with the use of recent advanced material and numerical models.
Dr. Korkolis graduated from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Greece, with a 5-year diploma in Mechanical Engineering and a MS in Computational Mechanics. He then pursued a PhD in Engineering Mechanics at the University of Texas at Austin, working on the formability and hydroforming of anisotropic aluminum tubes for automotive applications.
Dr. Korkolis joined the University of New Hampshire in 2009, where he has taught courses in Solid Mechanics, Manufacturing and Design. He has also held visiting appointments at Kyoto University and Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology in Japan. He has two years of experience in industry and the military. He has published over 35 peer-reviewed journal papers and has delivered over 100 conference papers, presentations, posters and invited talks. Currently, he serves as an Associate Editor for the ASME Journal of Manufacturing Science and Engineering, and is the Chair of the 2019 NUMIFORM (Numerical Methods for Industrial Forming Processes) conference.
