Chris Kim

Chris is currently a Ph.D. Graduate Student in the Digital Design and Manufacturing Lab in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at The Ohio State University. He received his M.S. in Aerospace Engineering in 2015 from the Pusan National University, Korea.


He is currently working on the Hybrid Joint Design Explorer project with other DDML members. The project focuses on multi-material joining, in particular, RivTac joints. The team aims to design, simulate and model the joints, with the ultimate goal of developing a knowledge-based design software for multi-material joining. With other DDML members, Chris:

  • identified the key parameters for the joint which will be included in the knowledge-based design software;
  • modeled the RivTac joint in ANSYS for Shear and Cross-Tension tests for Aluminum-Aluminum plates;
  • and aims to include composite plates and adhesives in the models; do DOE and create response surfaces from the simulation results.
