MAE SEMINAR: Using molecular water as an imaging agent for the detection of damage in polymer composites

September 24 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Abstract Traditionally, the tendency of polymers and polymer composites to absorb measurable moisture in nearly all environments has been viewed as purely detrimental. While moisture absorption does generally degrade material properties, the nature of its interaction with the material also provides opportunities to better understand the internal structure of the material, including early-stage damage, inclusions, and other flaws. Absorbed moisture exists in multiple states within a polymer depending on the type of physical or chemical interaction, or lack thereof, between…

MAE SEMINAR: Quasi-periodic structures: topology and higher order symmetries with Dr. Ruzzene

October 8 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Abstract: Periodic structures have drawn much attention within the engineering and physics communities due to their unique wave properties and their numerous applications in passive vibration and noise control. Some periodic arrangements also feature topological properties that lead to wave modes that are localized at the edges of a domain or at the interface between two distinct domains. From the geometric point of view, periodic systems can be considered as particular types of assemblies that belong to a much broader…

MAE SEMINAR: Toward dexterous control of assistive robotic hands using bi-directional neural-machine interface

October 15 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Speaker: Dr. Xiaogang Hu   Abstract: An intuitive neural interface is critical for effective communications between humans and assistive robots. We will discuss bi-directional noninvasive neural-machine interfaces that decode user intended movement and provide sensory feedback of the machine state and environment. We perform continuous decoding of intended finger movement based on spinal motoneuron firing activities, extracted from high-density electromyographic signals. It allows intuitive and robust control of individual fingers of a prosthetic hand. We also deliver somatosensory (tactile and…

MAE SEMINAR: Carbon Capture Technology Development in Saudi Arabia

October 22 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Speaker: Prof. William Roberts (King Abdullah University of Science and Technology)   Abstract: Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) will play a pivotal role in achieving the “net-zero” emissions goal of the sustainable energy future.  Last year, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia hosted the G20 summit, highlighting the growing need for a Circular Carbon Economy approach, which calls for a fundamental shift from the traditional practice of single-use with disposal to the atmosphere of carbon in the fuel sources.  Cost-effective…
