Dr. Wael Abdel Samad

Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering - Rochester Institute of Technology .

Dr. Wael A. Samad is an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the Department of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering at the Rochester Institute of Technology - Dubai Campus. Dr. Samad holds a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin - Madison with a minor in Engineering Mechanics & Astronautics. His main area of interest is in experimental solid mechanics applied to structures with ill-defined boundary and loading conditions. Dr. Samad has authored over 40 publications between peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings in addition to an edited volume on Smart Cities in the Gulf published by Palgrave. In recent years, Dr. Samad has applied his research to 3D printing and additive manufacturing in line with modern manufacturing industry trends. More specifically, his current research investigates the effects of rapid prototyping parameters on the mechanical properties of 3D printed artefacts by integrating digital image correlation with statistical methods.
