The areas of research and teaching are Computer-Aided Design and Manufacturing with emphasis on Feature Based Design, Optimization in Design and Manufacturing & Product Lifecycle Management. Recently, Dr. Anand has focused his research on applying these concepts to the field of Additive Manufacturing.


  • Modeling, Simulation and Optimization of Manufacturing Processes
    • Additive Manufacturing
    • The Center for Global Design and Manufacturing (CGDM) in the College of Engineering and Applied Science at University of Cincinnati is a research lab leading state-of-the-art research in areas of Advanced Manufacturing and Intelligent Product Design. Advanced Manufacturing research in CGDM is primarily focused on Additive Manufacturing (AM) with the motivation of improving the efficiency of the AM processes. The center is committed to develop novel computational geometry algorithms that will provide reliable solutions in design and process optimization. The research explores AM processes to develop design for additive manufacturing tools and pre-process optimization tools for optimum part designs that are lightweight and are of good quality. Such novel designs are finding tremendous applications in major aerospace and automotive industries as well as bio-medical industries who are looking for lighter, reliable and sustainable design solutions. The center’s research has been funded through various federal grants and industrial collaborations.
