Kevin Chou and Tom Starr, professors at the J.B., Speed School of Engineering, are leading a new National Science Foundation award, “Pore Formation Mechanisms in Laser Powder-Bed Fusion Additive Manufacturing.” The objectives of this research are to identify pore formation mechanisms in selective laser melting (SLM) and to predict, analyze and characterize porosity in SLM parts.




    IT to block outbound traffic classified as malware or phishing 

    In order to increase digital security on the university network for all UofL employees, Information Technology will begin to block outbound traffic classified as malware or phishing by our firewall intrusion detection system. This campus-wide change will be implemented during normal PM maintenance, Friday, July 7. Employees should not see any change in normal web or email use. However, if an individual on our university network, attempts a URL web address that carries malware or is attempting to steal credentials, they will instead get a webpage stating that the site has been blocked.
