UNF’s Jutima Simsiriwong receives ASTM International Additive Manufacturing Award

Dr. Jutima Simsiriwong headshotDr. Jutima Simsiriwong, University of North Florida mechanical engineering assistant professor, recently received the 2021 American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) International Additive Manufacturing Young Professional Award.

This award recognizes Simsiriwong as an emerging young professional who has made significant and continuous outstanding research contributions to the field of additive manufacturing, specifically in support of standardization development.

The award was presented during the International Conference on Additive Manufacturing in early November where Simsiriwong also gave an invited presentation and served on the Scientific Organizing Committee on Fatigue and Fracture of AM Materials and Parts Symposium.

Simsiriwong’s work in recent years has been devoted to enabling the use of metal additively manufactured parts and components in fatigue-critical applications. Her research focuses on fatigue and fracture mechanics, failure analysis, and mechanical behavior of materials including metals, polymers and composite materials.

Based on her research efforts, she has developed a unique special topic course in mechanical engineering at UNF that introduces students to the methods to characterize and predict the material responses to cyclic loading and provides students opportunities to conduct hands-on experiments in her laboratory.

Simsiriwong holds doctoral, master’s and bachelor’s degrees in aerospace engineering from Mississippi State University.
