Garrett Melenka, PhD

Garrett Melenka received his BSc. (2009), MSc. (2012), and PhD. (2016) in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Alberta. Garrett joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at York University in July 2017.


Our research team focuses on the design, manufacture, mathematical modeling and experimental analysis of advanced composite materials and braided composite structures. In addition, Our teams’ experience in composite materials has translated to the experimental analysis and modeling of additive manufactured structures. Our team specializes in the experimental analysis of composite structures using measurement techniques such as three-dimensional digital image correlation (3D DIC) and micro-computed tomography (µCT).

Research Keywords: Braided Composites, Composite Materials, Digital Image Correlation, Micro-computed tomography, Additive Manufacturing
