Derek Warner

Director and Cornell CEE Professor

BS (Mathematics), Saint Francis University, 2002 MS (Solid Mechanics), Johns Hopkins University, 2004 Ph D (Mechanical Engineering), Johns Hopkins University, 2006 Research Interests Derek is the current director of the Cornell Fracture Group. The group conducts both scientific and engineering research aimed at understanding and predicting the deformation and failure of structures. A primary scientific goal of the group is to illuminate and model the underlying physical mechanisms that control the failure of engineering materials. The group’s effort in this area supports the group’s engineering objective to advance the capability to predict the deformation and failure of structures through the utilization of new knowledge and modeling techniques. Through its research, the Cornell Fracture Group strives to increase the standard of living across the globe by enabling better performing, lower cost, and more sustainable technologies.

Senior Technical Advisor

BS (Aerospace & Aeronautical Engineering), University of Notre Dame, 1969 MS (Civil Engineering), Polytechnic University, 1971 Ph D (Civil Engineering), University of Colorado, 1977 Research Interest: The Cornell Fracture Group members include Prof. Tony Ingraffea, research associates, and graduate students. The mission of the Cornell Fracture Group is to create, to verify, and to validate computational simulation systems for fracture control in engineered systems. An equally important focus of the group is education at all levels. Our current and past research has focused on both experimental testing and numerical simulation of fatigue and fracture in a variety of materials.
