Clayton O. Ruud 9116 E. Sprague Ave.
Continuing my professional activity in retirement through offering my services as an expert witness.
Investigating the causes of failure in products and materials due to processing and or application; and the correlation of material characteristics with mechanical properties and fracture.
Teaching the manufacturing processing of materials (machining, welding, forming, coating, etc.) including failure and material property concerns.
Taught graduate and undergraduate manufacturing process and senior manufacturing design practicum courses in Manufacturing Engineering and Manufacturing Management. Supervised graduate students in Manufacturing Engineering and Management, Co-developer and co-director of an integrated business and engineering masters degree program in manufacturing management.
Periodically consulted to industry or served as an expert witness in manufacturing practices, product defects, and materials and product failures.
Conducted research in materials processing, characterization, modeling, and nondestructive materials evaluation. Principal investigator for research in material property analysis in metals and ceramics, x-ray diffraction, eddy current and ultrasonic nondestructive characterization of metallic alloys to predict mechanical and forming properties; and modeling of elastic and plastic response of metals to manufacturing processes.
Taught graduate and undergraduate courses in the
Conducted materials analysis and manufacturing process research, and supervised material failure analysis studies. Supervised a terminal ballistics laboratory conducting research in fabrication and failure analysis of composite materials for armor.
