Dr Caleap's research is multi-disciplinary encompassing various engineering disciplines, applied mathematics and physics. His research interests cover various aspects of wave propagation in heterogeneous complex media, including composite materials and metamaterials; his work encompasses ultrasonic array imaging, structural health monitoring with guided waves, multiple scattering and ultrasonic particle manipulation.
Dr. Caleap is currently exploiting the emerging possibility of designing fluid-particle mixtures or composite materials to form acoustic or elastic metamaterials for various applications including reconfigurable ultrasonic filters, ultrasonic meta-lenses for super-resolution imaging of tiny defects, vibration cloaking of sensitive components, and stealth applications for the military to security.
Research Investigator: Modelling approaches for depth-insensitive broadband acoustic absorber (for sonar applications)
Dr. Mihai Caleap is the lead researcher in wave engineering with multifunctional metamaterials and novel microstructures at the University of Bristol. He earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics and Physics, as well as a Master’s Degree in Engineering Physics. Dr. Caleap obtained his PhD in Mechanical Engineering in 2009 from the Institute of Mechanical Engineering at Université de Bordeaux, France and subsequently briefly worked there as an Assistant Professor for 9 months. From July 2009 to the present he worked as an academic in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Bristol.
