Dr. Martinez graduated with a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering from Carleton University in 1995. After working in industry he returned to school to continue his education. In 1997, he completed a master's degree in Mechanical Engineering from Carleton University. In 2006, he finished his Ph.D. in the area of FEA of smart material and structures. In his position at Clarkson University and TU Delft, he continues to perform research on the development of a Holistic Structural Integrity Process for aerospace structures.
Dr. Martinez is working on the development of a Holistic Structural Integrity Process, known as HolSIP. This process is physics based and founded upon the primary idea that all failure mechanisms involved in the degradation of the structure are interconnected and should not be analyzed as merely the sum of individual mechanisms. In reality, many failure mechanisms interact synergistically and are much more complex and challenging to understand, and thus the requirement for a holistic physics based analysis and design approach to structural integrity problems. The final goal of this holistic approach is to more accurately assess the reliability and structural integrity of mechanical and aerospace structures and whenever possible assist in extending their life. HolSIP requires many inputs to be able to provide the required outputs that structural integrity engineers need in order to assess the remaining useful life of an aerospace structure relative to its original certification. In order to achieve such a goal, HolSIP combines research fields such as: Health Usage Monitoring (HUMS), Structural Health Monitoring (SHM), Adaptive Structures, Machine Learning Algorithms, initial and current structural conditions, Flight Load and Condition Monitoring. As part of his research, Dr. Martinez, focuses on advancements in the field of SHM, Load Monitoring and fatigue of metallic and composites structures.
