    Course and Curriculum Development
    Developed two new graduate level courses, restructured two junior/senior level courses and added substantial content to a freshman level course:
    NEW GRADUATE COURSES
    (1)MANE 6750: Generalized Finite Element Methods
    Offered: Spring 2003, Spring 2005, Spring 2009
    NOTE: The course was first offered in spring 2003 as MANE 6966-0 (special topics). Subsequently it has been approved by the Faculty Senate Curriculum Committee to be included in the catalog as MANE 6750.
    Description: This course introduces the state-of-the-art numerical techniques for computational mechanics (e.g., partition of unity methods and integral equation-based methods), which overcome long-standing problems associated with traditional finite element methods (e.g., mesh generation, resolution of singularities and exterior problems). Topics discussed in this course include scattered data interpolation, weighted residual methods, fast integral equation methods for exterior problems (with applications to modeling of MEMS devices and 3D interconnect design), and multiresolution solution techniques using wavelets. Students from Mechanical, Civil and Electrical Engineering as well as from Material Science, Computer Science and Mathematics have registered for this course in the past years. All lectures are available as detailed PowerPoint slides which the students can download from the course website. The course evaluation consists of four project-type home works; critique of a published paper by each student and a major project, performed in groups of two. The home works involve both analytical and computational problems. The major project is usually intensive in computer implementation. Students propose the project topic and interact regularly with the instructor as they progress. The culmination of the project is a 20-minute presentation with 10-minute question/answer session. Prerequisite: MANE 4240 or CIVL 4240 or equivalent. Term(s) offered: SPRING SEMESTER OF ALTERNATE (ODD) YEARS Credit hours: 3
    (2)MANE 6965: Applications of Multiscale Modeling
    Offered: Spring 2006, Spring 2008
    MANE/PHYS/CHME/CIVL 6961: Computational Mechanics: from the Nano- to the Macro
    Offered: Spring 2004
    Co-taught with: Professors Hanchen Huang (MANE) and Saroj Nayak (PHYS)
    Description: This course introduces a unified approach of modeling in science and engineering across spatial and temporal scales using particles as well continuum fields, specifically focusing on methods and algorithms that facilitate this bridging. Our goal is to algorithmically develop these methods, and in the process teach the underlying techniques for simulating quantum mechanics, molecular dynamics and continuum phenomena which underpin these multiscale methods. Applications to real problems highlight the strengths of these approaches, while stressing the challenges that still need to be surmounted before they can be used in an engineering design toolkit. The course is hands-on. Students learn to use the computational quantum mechanics code Gaussian and write codes as part of home work exercises for molecular dynamics and finite element methods. The course evaluation consists of three in-class examinations, home works and a major course project performed by students in groups of two. The project must bridge at least tow spatial/temporal scales and involves actual implementation and a 20-mintue presentation towards the end of the course. Prerequisite: Permission of instructor Credit hours: 3
    UNDERGRADUATE COURSES
    (3)MANE 4240/CIVL 4240: Introduction to Finite Elements
    Offered: Fall 2003-2010
    Description: This is a senior level elective finite element course. This was an exiting course offered every semester with around 30 students per semester. However, De teach this once every year (the other semester being usually taught by Professor Jacob Fish) and has restructured this course in terms of course contents, home works and projects as described below.
    The course now covers direct stiffness methods for springs, trusses and frames; introduction to boundary value problems and principle of minimum potential energy; CST, quadrilateral and higher order elements for 2D plane stress/plane strain analysis of linear elastic structures; area coordinates and isoparametric formulation; numerical integration in 1 and 2D; solution of systems of algebraic equations; practical guidelines for mesh generation, analysis and solution interpretation.
    Student evaluation consists of eight home works, two examinations and two projects. In the mini project the students are asked to solve a well-defined design problem, usually on three-dimensional space frames, using commercial software (such as ABAQUS). The major project is more open ended. The students, in groups of two, propose a topic in which they choose an engineering system and propose to design/analyze it with certain constraints in mind. The culmination is a project report which provides details of how engineering analysis and design were performed; how and why the physical and mathematical models were chosen and what model verification steps were performed. Linking this project with other design classes that the student might be taking is strongly encouraged. Many groups interact with local industries to identify interesting engineering problems obtaining blueprints of machine parts and data on typical loading conditions. Some of the students in this class are Biomedical engineering majors who choose problems related to the design of biomedical devices or analysis of biomedical systems.
    All lecture notes are made available to the students as PowerPoint downloadable from the instructors course website.
    Analysis software such as ABAQUS is made available through RPI. Students can download copies of the software on their machines and work from anywhere on or off campus (as long as they are connected to the license server on campus). Tutorials are provided as both in-class demonstrations and handouts.
    (4)MANE 4030: Elements of Mechanical Design
    Offered: Spring 2007, Spring 2008
    Description: This is a junior level design analysis course for Mechanical Engineering students. This course focuses on mechanical design emphasizing complementary efforts of synthesis and analysis for failure prevention. In particular, the following fundamental topics are considered: applied stress analysis involving complex stress fields; deflection and stiffness considerations; impact; failure theories; and material selection. Based on these fundamentals, a variety of mechanical components are investigated including shafts, gears, sliding and rolling contact bearings, fasteners, and brakes.
    Thoroughly restructured this course in terms of course contents, home works and projects:
    Developed a structured set of very detailed PowerPoint lecture notes for all the lectures which are uploaded on the course website for students to access before they come to class.
    Initiated a weekly problem review session every Wednesday. This is in addition to TA and instructor office hours. For the large class size (around 150 students per semester), this technique is aimed at increasing student interaction.
    Student evaluation consists of home works, two in-class examinations and a final. Students are also required to submit a worksheet corresponding to every class where they solve a problem related to that class with much more detailed instructions on how to solve the problem than in the homework problems.
    (5)ENGR 1100: Introduction to Engineering Analysis
    Offered: Spring 2002-2006, Fall 2006
    Description: This freshman level course provides an integrated treatment of Vector Mechanics (Statics) and Linear Algebra. It also emphasizes computer-based matrix methods for solving engineering problems. Students are expected to learn key principles of Statics and Linear Algebra and to demonstrate computer skills with vectors and matrix manipulation. Key innovation in this course was the development of a set of detailed lecture notes that were made available to the students through the course website.
    Outreach to high school students
    De hosts high school students participating in the New Visions program every year in his lab. After an hours lecture on haptics, the students are provided hands-on demos of interactive simulations. Ms Tammie Boreland, the New Visions teacher acknowledges that this is one of the best experiences for her students. An email from one of the students visiting Des lab in Nov 2008 clearly indicates student enthusiasm:
    Dr De,
    I am one of the New Visions students who visited your lab the other day. I wanted to thank you for this opportunity. My classmates and I all greatly enjoyed your demonstrations. Before meeting you, I had no idea what haptics was. But after having played with a virtual die and liver, this field had us all aghast! Truly the best way to learn is "hands-on", and this is quite literal with haptics.Thanks again for having us, and I hope future students will have this opportunity.-Colin Kueble

    Departmental Committees
    1. Mechanical Engineering curriculum coordinator, June 2007-present. Duties involve working with the department head every semester to decide teaching assignments, and Mechanical Engineering (ME) curriculum revision. Accomplishments to date include:
    Mechanical Engineering students were not introduced to multivariable calculus. This deficiency was addressed by including MATH 2010 MULTIVARIBALE CALCULUS AND LINEAR ALGEBRA in the ME curriculum. This is currently incorporated in the 2009 course catalog.
    Undertook a year-long ME curriculum revision exercise which involved several meetings with groups of faculty, discussions at the departmental leadership meetings and conducting summer retreats. Three major areas were identified:
    (1) ME students are insufficiently equipped with computational engineering skills. A compulsory computational engineering course in the junior year has been proposed to rectify this issue.
    (2) ME students take a sequence of two Thermo-fluids courses with insufficient emphasis on Fluid Mechanics. A fluid mechanics course has been proposed.
    (3) There is significant overlap between the newly introduced MATH 2010 and an existing 4 credit freshman level ENGR 1100 Introduction to Engineering Analysis (IEA) course. A new 3 credit Engineering Statics course has been proposed to replace IEA.
    In addition, based upon faculty feedback, De has worked with the department head and Catalin Picu to develop a restructuring plan to eliminate the ME concentration electives and replace them by Technical Electives
