Stuart McHugh, Ph.D. is the Materials Engineer for Department A044S at the Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Center. In his role, Dr. McHugh makes the most of his expertise in materials science, solid state physics, research and hardware design examination when researching materials, conducting stress and facture analysis of aerospace structures and materials, and performing computational analysis. Dr. McHugh has published more than 100 scientific papers as well as his Ph.D. thesis, “Short Period Tilt Events and Episodic Slip on the San Andreas Fault.” His other publications range from “Dislocation Modeling of Creep-Related Tilt Changes” in the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America (1978) to “Thermomechanical Characterization of a Membrane Deformable Mirror” in Applied Optics (2008). Dr. McHugh has been involved in the compilation of the following publications:
Co-Author, “Analyzing Interlaminar Shear Strength of Multi-Scale Composites Via combined Finite Element and Progressive Failure Analysis Approach,” Fall Technical Conference, Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (2008)
Co-Author, “Thermomechanical Characterization of a Membrane Deformable Mirror,” Applied Optics (2008)
Author, “Computational Replication of the Electrostatic Discharge Threshold Energy in a Confined Test,” 10th International Conference on Mathematical and Computer Modeling (1995)
Author, “Finite Element Computational Casting Simulations of a 70 Lbm. BATES Motor and a 48-Inch Motor,” 9th International Conference on Mathematical and Computer Modeling, University of California, Berkeley (1993)
Author, “Solid mechanical Deformation Interactions with Transient Burning,” 9th International Conference on Mathematical and Computer Modeling, University of California, Berkeley (1993)
Author, “The Effect of Geometric Monlinearity (Large Strains) On Computational Simulations of Strain Energy Release Rate in Analog Laboratory Experiments of Case Bond Separation,” Volume 2, Mathematical Modeling and Scientific Computing Journal (1993)
Upon reflecting on a rewarding career, Dr. McHugh pinpoints the highlights of his career thus far as his applying for a U.S. patent and receiving a Lockheed Martin Award for Ultrafast Metamaterials Based Beam Steering in 2011, and receiving a special recognition award from Lockheed Martin/Advanced Technology Technology Center in 2012 as part of the ATC Graphene Molecular Filtration Team.
