Gopal Jayaraman


  • Professor Emeritus, Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics
  • PhD, University of Iowa


Jayaraman's on-going research projects are in the area of biomechanics and solid mechanics. In the area of biomechanics they focus on injury mechanisms in human joints and organs due to impact and fatigue and prevention of injuries by prophylactic gears and braces. In the area of solid mechanics they focus on structural failure and material failure due to buckling, impact and fatigue.
