David Eisenmann holds bachelor’s degrees in agriculture, secondary education, and materials engineering, a master’s degree in secondary education, and a Ph.D. in materials science and engineering. He conducts research in the areas of ground penetrating radar, eddy current, magnetic particle inspection, fluorescent penetrant inspection, phaseed array utrasound (PAUT), soil compaction and metallurgy. In addition to his primary research areas, his work also includes sample fabrication and materials characterization through various methodologies to include optical and electron microscopy, x-ray diffraction, laser and optical profilometry, and standard metallurgy techniques. His Ph.D. research focused on the effects of alloying elements on the fatigue properties of nodular cast iron at high temperature.
