Dong Receives Outstanding Paper Award

ISE associate professor Jingyan Dong is awarded the NAMRI/SME Outstanding Paper Award at annual conference

UNC Charlotte kicked off the 43rd annual SME North American Manufacturing Research Conference (NAMRC) on June 8th, 2015 in Charlotte, NC.

ISE associate professor Jingyan Dong, along with his research team of Yiwei Han and Chuang Wei, received the NAMRI/SME Outstanding Paper Award for their paper entitled, Droplet Formation and Settlement of Phase-Change Ink in High Resolution Electrohydrodynamic (EHD) 3D Printing.

Dr. Dong’s research focuses on the EHD printing process for phase-change wax material to achieve high resolution sub 10-μm 3D structures. He has used Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to develop the model for droplet formation and droplet settlement.

Congratulations, Jingyan!
