Research Activities:

Dr. Yıldız's research focuses on the experimental and computational aspects of materials processing with emphasis on advanced polymer-based composite materials, and crystal growth. He has been conducting research on manufacturing polymer-based composite materials for applications in aircraft structures and structural health management of fiber-reinforced advanced composite structures with embedded fiber optic FBG sensor arrays. Within the framework of his research on composite materials, Dr. Yıldız was also involved in a collaborative research activity on nano particle integrated composite materials. He is currently setting-up a crystal growth laboratory to grow Silicon-Germanium single crystals from the Silicon rich-side of the phase diagram. As well, he has been actively working on the development meshless computational fluid dynamics algorithms by using Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) method for simulating complex engineering problems such as free surface flow, multiphase flow and solidification.
