Welcome to the Jordon Research Group
The goal of Dr. Jordon's research group is to establish high fidelity engineering models that are motivated through process-structure-property relationships. Here, we look to understand fundamental links between microstructure and bulk material response through the use of state-of-the-art characterization tools and numerical simulations. By capturing the underlining mechanisms, we can make realistic predictions of the mechanical performance of materials and structural components.
Dr. Jordon's research interests include experimental quantification of process-structure-property relationships, fatigue and fracture, constitutive modeling of plasticity and damage, and process simulation modeling of welding and joining.
Dr. Jordon's teaching interests include undergraduate and graduate solid mechanics and materials related courses. He primarily teaches Fundamentals of Modern Manufacturing, Machine Design, and Senior Design Capstone courses.
Fatigue and Fracture of Friction Stir Linear Welded Dissimilar Aluminum-to-Magnesium alloys: A comprehensive study of fatigue life and damage mechanisms of friction stir linear welded dissimilar aluminum-to-magnesium alloys in lap-shear configuration is presented. The overlap linear welds were created by welding AA6022 aluminum alloy to AM60B magnesium alloy. The test results showed significant scatter in the fatigue life and the corresponding fracture modes. Two distinct modes of failure were observed for the lap-shear specimens. In one of the failure modes observed...Click here to continue reading
