Thermal Manufacturing and Machining Group


The Thermal Manufacturing and Machining Group is a part of the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee.

Our research is focused on thermal aspects of
-machining processes (e.g. grinding, turning, honing, milling, drilling, etc.)
-environmentally benign manufacturing
-Fuel Cells and Hydrogren Generation Technology
-Batteries (Lead Acid and Lithium Ion)
-Cold Gas Dynamic Spraying of Nanoparticles
-Nanotechnology in Materials processing
-Biosensing Technology
-Numerical Heat Transfer

Our work is interdisciplinary and combines many diverse fields like mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer engineering, physics, and materials science. Every day, our team of highly qualified, dedicated, and innovative researchers equipped with state-of-the-art laboratories and equipment perform cutting-edge research that will have broad impacts far into the 21st century.
