Associate ProfessorMechanical Engineering
interests involve the application of analytic methods to the design of
mechanical systems. Since joining the faculty as Chair in 2001, Dr. Cornwell has
been involved in the development of the program and the teaching machine design,
mechanics and numerical methods courses
Dr. Cornwell received a BS in Civil Engineering and a MS in Engineering from the
University of Texas-Austin. He received a Ph.D. in Engineering Mechanics from
the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His dissertation research involved the
development and implementation of a thermodynamically consistent constitutive
model of polymeric materials. Prior to receiving his Ph.D., Dr. Cornwell was
employed by Exxon Production Research Company where he participated in the
development of optimization and reliability methods for offshore structures.
Upon completing his Ph.D., Dr. Cornwell became a Principal Engineer at the
Boeing Company where he contributed to the development of analytical methods for
both composite and metallic airframe structures. He also served as Chair of the
Technical Team of the National Airport Pavement Test Program.
