Living in Melbourne, Australia.
Mr. Wafai is working on the industrial research project on damage characterization of thermoplastic based fiber-reinforced composites. He studies macroscopic shear response of thermoplastic composite at different cooling rates, and mainly develop an experimental device for damage observation at micro-scale for thermoplastic composites at slow and high-speed.
Husam currently works on testing and characterization of mechanical properties and damage behavior of thermoplastic based fiber-reinforced composites. Before that, he worked on material modeling, starting from parametric study, up to formulating from scratch a multi-physics material model based on variational approach. Since he obtained his master degree in Material Science & Engineering, he worked on multiple projects:
