SAMPE Orange County Meeting Notice

Joint Meeting with LA SAMPE Chapter

Thur., March 24th, 2016 at 6 p.m.

Study of Nanoparticles
Dr. Hamid Saghizadeh
Boeing, Technical Fellow


Hamid Saghizadeh, PhD, MBA, Boeing Technical Fellow, SoCal Design Center, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, Long Beach, California. He presently leads Durability and Damage Tolerance (DaDT) activities for SoCal Engineering Design Center. Dr. Saghizadeh additionally, leads Boeing Enterprise Fatigue and Fracture Mechanics/DaDT Technologies CoE and Boeing joint Academia & Industry Educational Program (BAIP), which includes Boeing/ UCLA Structural Analysis Certificate Program. He serves as a point of contact for space products representing Boeing at Southwest Research Institute (SWRI) and NASA for NASGRO Worldwide Consortium.

Hamid is an affiliate Professor at the University of California, Los Angeles. He is presently teaching courses to Boeing engineers in the areas of Fatigue, Fracture Mechanics, Durability & Damage Tolerance (DaDT) of Metals & Composites, Advanced Composites and Structures - Design, Analysis, and Repair, and Nanotechnology/ Nanomaterials for Aerospace Applications.

He has led and managed large teams across the enterprise toward successful completion of challenging technical projects and strategic planning. They include leading and contributing to the DaDT development of the Boeing Enterprise Design and Analysis Principals Manual and Composite Design Analysis Handbook and development of Boeing Enterprise Courses.

Dr. Saghizadeh is a pioneer in the areas of Elastic-Plastic Fracture Mechanics (EPFM) and fracture of composites, and is recognized as an industry expert in EPFM. His areas of interest also include mechanism of hydrogen-environment embrittlement, stress corrosion cracking, rupture and time-dependent failure mechanism, nanotechnology, virtual testing, and multi-scale modeling.

Hamid led the planning and development of Knowledge Management System (MSEKM) at Boeing Space and Intelligence Systems (S&IS). As part of his efforts, he developed strategy and roadmaps to establish an integrated system to capture, develop, organize and disseminate organizational knowledge and strategy including tacit knowledge, tools, processes, skills and technology within the organization. The main challenge was to develop the underlying cultural shift and to increase awareness and understanding of the organizational vision and objectives.

As part of his research and development efforts, Dr. Saghizadeh conceived of and developed an innovative and original fatigue virtual testing technology with significant industry impact. It is based on a closed form solution to generate fatigue S-N data, thus avoiding costly and time-consuming tests for life assessment of aircraft and space structures. He has three disclosed patents in process for his technology and design developments. He developed and published (through ASME) two original models on fracture of composites that has been cited over 30 times in international journals.

Hamid is a Summa Cum Laude graduate and holds BSME, and M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley, and an MBA from UCLA Anderson School of Management.
