Credentials

Ph.D., Mechanical Engineering, Ohio State University, 1987
M.S., Mechanical Engineering, Ohio State University, 1980
B.S., Mechanical Engineering, Ohio State University, 1975

Prof. Fussell has been with the ME department at UNH since 1987. His work experience outside the university includes 2 years as a product engineer for the Timken Company, a summer working for the Air Force as a visiting scientist, and a sabbatical semester as a visiting professor at the EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland. He currently maintains an active research program and co-directs the Design and Manufacturing Laboratory with Professor Robert Jerard (Design & Manufacturing Lab website).

Prof. Fussell has taught a large variety of courses at UNH. Currently, he teaches the following courses on a regular basis:

  • ME670 – Systems Modeling and Controls
  • ME747 – Complex Systems and Measurements
  • ME770 – Design with Microprocessors
  • ME773 – Electromechanical Analysis and Design
  • ME951 – Advanced Control Systems I

Research Areas

Prof. Fussell has two main areas of research. His manufacturing research interests include: smart machining systems, cutting force modeling, model uncertainty, tool condition monitoring, chatter detection and control, wireless sensors, and process control. His research has been funded by NSF, Air Force, SME and industry. For more information, please visit the Design & Manufacturing Lab website.

His other area of research is in electromechanical analysis and design, concentrating on brushless, stepper, and reluctance motors. This work has been funded by industry.

A short descriptive list of his research interests is given below:

  • Smart machining system that integrate models, sensor data, and computer control
  • Modeling and control of computer numerical control (CNC) machining
  • Model uncertainty and its effect on process planning/control
  • Machining chatter detection and control
  • Electromechanical design including brushless and stepper motors
