He oversees Fracture Mechanics and Fracture Technology Associates (FTA), including FTA fracture mechanics test systems and software.The Fracture Mechanics Department predominantly performs Fatigue Crack Growth Testing and Fracture Toughness Testing to ASTM and other recognized test specifications. The FTA Software includes two primary applications for performing mechanical tests, Fatigue Crack Growth Rate (FCGR) and Non-Linear Fracture Toughness (NLFT). Dr. Adler has over a decade of hands-on experience in experimental fatigue and fracture using FTA software-controlled systems.

Dr. Adler is a graduate of Lehigh University, where he earned BS, MS and PhD degrees in Mechanical Engineering. He was a graduate research assistant in the University’s fracture mechanics Sinclair Laboratory in the Mechanical Engineering Department where he used FTA test systems to study variable amplitude fatigue crack growth and aging aircraft as part of damage prognosis systems.

His professional career includes nearly eight years of employment in the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) program in Huntsville, AL. Most recently, Dr. Adler was with the program as an employee of Jacobs Technology, Inc. / Jacobs ESSSA, where he held the concurrent titles of Skill Lead and Damage Tolerance Subject Matter Expert. He has been an active leader within the ASTM E08 Committee on Fatigue and Fracture, as well as a participant in ASTM E28 (Mechanical Testing) and ASTM G01 (Metals Corrosion).
