Resume –F.V Ellis
Postdoctoral Research Associate 1972 to 1974
His work at Cornell was to investigate the inelastic deformation of materials at room and elevated temperatures from the mechanical equation of state viewpoints. Precise stress relaxation measurements were made to obtain the stress-inelastic strain rate relationship over seven orders of magnitude in inelastic strain-rate. This relationship defines the structure parameter.
Doctoral Student, 1967 to 1972
He wrote his doctoral thesis on "Deformation of Aluminum Bicrystals." His thesis work was an application of continuum mechanics and dislocation theory to plastic deformation of aluminum bicrystals.
FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY
Graduate Research Assistant, 1965 to 1967
A strain induced phase transformation of ordered Beta Cu Pd to a disordered metasable f.c.c. phase was discovered. The strain, particle size, stacking fault parameter and long range order parameter were determined from X-ray measurements.
