Professor James Njuguna
|Biography||My research is focused on experimental research on composite materials reinforcement, toughness, materials design and selection; and structural-property relationship. Structural composites research is on evaluation of composites integrity and durability evaluation primary structural applications in impact resistance and energy absorption management. I have developed several commercialised solutions and products plus published widely in composites, nanocomposites and structural integrity issues specifically focusing on vibration, impact and crash performance.
A side stream of my research focus on exploiting materials failure behaviour to investigate emission/diffusion/release of nanofillers from polymer fibre-reinforced nanocomposites which contributes to research on their durability and on furthering NanoSafety of nanomaterials to human and environmental health.
