Dr. John Tierney holds a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Delaware and has an honors Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the National University of Ireland. Dr. Tierney has extensive experience in design and processing of composites and has been conducting research in innovative processing methods for manufacturing composites parts for almost 20 years.

Dr. Tierney is proficient in CATIAv5 as well as a number of FEA packages that include Patran/Nastran, Abaqus, ANSYS as well as FiberSIM, Abaqus for Catia (AFC) and MSC.SimDesigner. Dr. Tierney has done research in the areas of automated tow placement, induction lamination, VARTM processing, autoclave manufacturing, prepreg production, OOA processing, high temperature filament winding and infrared thermoforming. His work has focused on modeling material behavior as well as process optimization for manufacturing composites using numerous analytical and FE based methods.

Dr. Tierney has developed a generic set of design tools called CDS (Composite Design and Simulation Software) and SMARTree software which represents the core of all analytical software tools for composites processing, mechanics and design at the University of Delaware’s Center for Composite Materials. These applications are currently distributed to sponsoring DoD agencies as well as industry and academic institutions worldwide.

If you have a composites related project that requires assistance in either design, analysis or processing Dr. Tierney can help apply his experience to help take the guesswork out of designing with these materials.
