RESEARCH INTERESTS

Professor Kruzic’s research focuses on the mechanical behavior of a wide range of materials, including metals, ceramics, intermetallics, biomaterials, and biological tissues such as teeth, bones, and skin. His research topics include understanding the mechanisms of fracture, fatigue, crack propagation, creep, and deformation of materials.  An additional area of interest is the failure analysis of materials and the development of models for lifetime and reliability predictions. Professor Kruzic has published over 100 technical articles in his field. Notable honors include receiving the prestigious CAREER award from the United States National Science Foundation in 2006 and the Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in Germany in 2011.
