Join the Department of Mechanical and Biomechanical Engineering from noon-1 p.m. Oct. 27 in MEC 106 for a seminar on the adoption of smart materials in auto and aircraft design, presented by guest lecturer Zhangxian Deng, a currentt postdoctoral researcher in the NSF IUCRC Smart Vehicle Concepts Center at Ohio State University.
This event is free and open to the public.
Smart materials are a class of advanced materials whose properties can be significantly controlled by external stimuli, such as stress, temperature, electric voltage or magnetic field. The multi-functional nature of smart materials has been investigated in automotive and aerospace applications targeting vibration energy harvesting, vibration absorption or isolation and wireless sensing.
