Olivier Bauchau teaches and conducts research in the fields of structural dynamics, multibody dynamics, experimental dynamics, and mechanics of advanced composite materials and structures. He was educated at Universite de l'Etat a Liege (Belgium), Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA. He has worked as a researcher at St. Gobain Recherches in Paris, France and as associate professor at the department of Mechanical Engineering, Aeronautical Engineering, and Mechanics at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY, before settling as a professor at the Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering, at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia. Faculty responsibilities include teaching of graduate and undergraduate courses, and conducting research in the fields of structural dynamics, multibody dynamics, experimental dynamics, and mechanics of advanced composite materials and structures.
Professor Bauchau is an Engineering Consultant with United Technologies Research Center in Hartford, CT.; Sikorsky Aircraft in Stratford, CT.; Bell Helicopter in Fort Worth, TX.; NASA Ames Research Center in Moffet Field, CA; NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, VA; Advanced Rotorcraft Technology Inc. in Mountain View, CA.; Materials Technologies Corporation in Monroe, CT.
His fields of expertise include teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in the areas of Theory of Structures, Strength of Materials, Advanced Structural Analysis, Design with Composite Materials, Aeroelasticity, Finite Element Methodologies, Engineering Mechanics, Structural Dynamics, Machine Dynamics, and Engineering Laboratories, as well as conducting research in the areas of Finite Element Methods for Structural and Multibody Dynamics, Experimental Mechanics and Dynamics, and the Design and Manufacturing of Composite Materials and Structures.
