Dr. Cameron joined the University in 1987 and is currently an Associate Research Professor of Chemical Engineering and of the Polymer Institute. He hold a Bachelors degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Minnesota and a M.S.ChE and PhD. in Engineering Science from the University of Toledo. His academic background is in transport phenomena with a strong emphasis on computer simulation.
Over fifteen years of industrial experience have provided good experience in applying computer simulation to process engineering. During this time in industry, he was involved in a variety of projects including analyses of thermoforming of PET sheet, injection molding, data acquisition, thermal stress analysis, and glass flow simulation.
Since joining the Polymer Institute, he has continued to balance the experimental aspects of engineering with the theoretical and computational aspects of applying computer simulation to process analysis and design. Die design, manifold design, container design and analysis of solvent stress cracking are just a few of the project areas which have been successfully investigated.
Research interests include computational analysis, process modeling, finite element methods and numerical techniques. In the polymer area, he has been involved in research projects dealing with mechanical properties of polymers and also with infrared heating of plastics.
Properties of Polymer Systems (ChEE 5850 / 7850) is taught during the spring semester every other year. The course is included in the Polymer Option for a graduate degree in Chemical Engineering. The focus is on mechanical properties of polymers.
Polymer Processing (ChEE 6840 / 8840) is taught during the spring semester every other year- during the years that Polymer Properties is not offered. The course emphasizes an analytical approach to several processes used in manufacturing in the plastics industry.
Chemical Engineering Lab I (ChEE 4500) This is a senior level course. Here students learn to apply the principles of engineering learned in the classroom to a laboratory setting.
Chemical Engineering Lab II (ChEE 4550) This is a senior level course. Here students learn to apply the principles of engineering learned in the classroom to a laboratory setting.
Transport Phenomena I (ChEE 6550 / 8550) is the graduate level transport course which covers fluid mechanics
Transport Phenomena II (ChEE 6560 / 8560)
is the graduate level transport course which covers heat and mass transfer
