Mike Kelly

 

 

Mike is the manager of the Organic Materials Department in the Manufacturing Science and Technology Center at Sandia National Laboratories. This department provides materials expertise, processing expertise, and prototype fabrication capabilities for a wide variety of polymer applications, including plastics, gels, encapsulants, adhesives, and composites. We practice concurrent engineering with designers who are involved in the application of thermosetting, thermoplastic, and composite materials. We routinely use these materials to join, package, and provide structural members to satisfy demanding electrical, mechanical, and environmental design requirements. This department also provides a wide range of analytical support. We do fundamental research on adhesion, support the stress and fracture mechanics modeling efforts with experiments, perform emergency production when necessary, and work with our customers to find the right material for the job.
