Professor Pier Marzocca Delivered an Invited Plenary Lecture at the Ninth International Congress on Thermal Stresses in Budapest, Hungary


Professor Pier Marzocca

Professor Pier Marzocca (of Clarkson University’s Department of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering) delivered an invited plenary lecture in June at the Ninth International Congress on Thermal Stresses in Budapest, Hungary. His lecture, titled “Nonlinear Aero-Thermo-Elasticity of Functionally Graded Structures,” summarized the latest developments in advanced functionally graded materials and structures with applications in the aerospace area. Marzocca was invited to speak to more than 150 scientists from all over the world as one of the leading scientists studying complex applied problems involving the interaction of multiple fields.

Professor Marzocca studies the interaction of aerodynamics and thermal load, their effects on advanced composite structures, and how the next generation of composite materials structures can be better engineered. His activities in materials have been recognized by Springer Science + Business Media, a leading global scientific publisher. Earlier in the year, he was invited to join a handful of scientists around the world to write the first Encyclopedia of Thermal Stresses, which will appear later in 2012.
