Dr. Stephen M. Morse is an assistant professor of civil engineering. A leading expert in window glass, his research provides a basis for industry glass strength design standards. Professor Morse's research interests include:
- window glass strength
- model and full-scale wind loads on structures
- finite element analysis
- engineering design software development
He is developing a numerical model to predict the behavior of uniform laterally loaded triple-insulating glass units that have recently become popular because of their thermal transmission performance.
In summer 2012 Professor Morse will be teaching engineering mechanics to study-abroad students in Seville, Spain. He also participates on the committees responsible for glass industry design standards.
Professor Morse received his bachelor's, master's and doctorate in civil engineering from Texas Tech University.
