Dr. Gustavo J. Molina, Associate Professor, completed his PhD in Mechanical Engineering in 2000 at Virginia Tech. He has conducted research in the area of triboemission, biolubricants/biofuels lubrication, nanofluid erosion, stochastics modeling of emission phenomena, high vacuum, and design of experimental equipment.
Dr. Brian L. Vlcek, Professor, received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering in 1991 from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. He has conducted research in the area of cryogenic turbopump seals, vapor lubrication of high temperature contacts, fatigue failure of PVC coatings, probabilistic modeling of fatigue failure, aluminum fatigue failure and analysis, alternative energy and tribology of biofuels.
