In the Classroom

Prof. Balogun teaches undergraduate level courses EA-206-2: Engineering Analysis: Statics and Dynamics, and ME 363: Mechanical Engineering. EA-206-2 provides freshman level undergraduates with a solid background in the application of Newton’s laws to engineering problem solving. ME 363 provides students with a strong  background in modeling and interpretation of oscillatory motion in mechanical systems, based on physics based analysis approaches.

Prof. Balogun also teaches a graduate level course, ME 495: Dynamic deformation of materials. The course focuses on  aspects of wave motion in solids including, linear and nonlinear elastic deformation, fracture, and diffraction, induced by dynamic mechanical loading. Specific examples from metals, polymers and composites are provided. The course also surveys available experimental techniques for understanding dynamic deformation in materials.
