Group Leader
Dr. K. N. Solanki is an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering in the SEMTE at Arizona State University. Prior to coming to ASU, he was an Associate Director for the Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems at Mississippi State University. Dr. Solanki received his Ph.D. from Mississippi State University in December 2008. Dr. Solanki's research interest is at the interface of solid mechanics and materials science, with a focus on characterizing and developing microstructure-based structure –property relationships across multiple length and time scales. To date, he has coauthored >50 journal articles, four book chapters, and >35 conference proceedings with faculty and students at ASU and MSU. In addition, his paper published in Engineering Fracture Mechanics was recognized as one of the most highly cited papers from year 2002 to 2005. For his efforts to promote the education of engineering students in the area of fatigue technology, he was awarded the SAE Henry O. Fuch Award by the SAE Fatigue Design & Evaluation Committee. In 2011, Dr. Solanki received TMS Light Metals Magnesium Best Fundamental Research Paper Award for his work on predicting deformation and failure behavior in magnesium alloys using a multiscale modeling approach. Recently, he received the 2013 TMS Light Metals Division Young Leader Professional Development Award, the 2013 Air Force Office of Scientific Research Young Investigator Research Award, the 2013 ASME “Orr Award” for Early Career Excellence in Fatigue, Fracture, and Creep, and the 2016 Science awards from the ONR/ECI.
