Degradation of Nanocomposites under Environmental Conditions and Nanotoxicity Implications

Chad Korach

Chad Korach

Assistant Professor

Stony Brook University

Chad Korach’s research interests encompass the fields of tribology and solid mechanics, both theoretical and experimental, specializing in manufacturing wear processes, theoretical analysis of friction, and wear properties of thin films. Contact mechanics, fracture mechanics, mircromechanics and the experimental analysis of tribological materials and processes at scales ranging from macro to nanoscopic are used to model wear at the nano or asperity scale and bridging to the micro and macro or component scale. Scratch testing, indentation, and surface analysis are used for material characterization of thin films and surfaces for wear applications. Areas of research involve thin films for tools, dental materials, molecular scale friction, adhesive contact, and engineered surfaces. Dr. Korach is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the Society for Lubrication and Tribological Engineers, and the American Society for Engineering Education.
