Richard D. Sudduth0000-0003-4457-2759
Richard D. Sudduth has a B.S. degree in chemical engineering from the University of Nebraska (1965) and an M.S. degree in chemical engineering from the University of Michigan (1967). His Ph.D. degree, however, is in macromolecular Science from the Case Western Reserve University (1973). Over the years, he has worked for several companies including Brunswick Defense in Lincoln as well as Boeing where he worked on Materials for the Advanced Tactical Fighter as well as the Space Station. He has also taught at two Universities including the University of Southern Mississippi and the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Consequently, he has over 70 technical publications and presentations. Most of these articles have involved the optimization of the physical properties of polymer composites and coatings. In general, these articles have primarily involved the theoretical and practical application of particulates as used in the blending and compounding of polymer composites and coatings to achieve certain desired physical properties. Additional articles have addressed various curing approaches to optimize the physical properties of composites and coatings as well. Dr. Sudduth is currently the President of Materials Research and Processing, LLC and a 32% owner of a coatings company.
