SEMINAR: Multibody Dynamics: from Space Exploration to Renewable Energy

September 18 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Abstract This seminar will present an overview of multibody dynamics research taking place in the Engineering Mechanics and Space Systems Lab at NC State, with a focus on space systems and renewable energy applications. After a brief introduction, advances in tethered aerospace systems and bio-inspired planetary rovers will be presented, followed by recent advances in tethered multibody systems used to extract energy from ocean currents. Tethered aerospace systems have a vast array of applications, including artificial gravity, in-space energy generation,…

SEMINAR: Pulling Back the Curtain: Managing Product Variety and Navigating Uncertain Futures

September 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Abstract Engineers make system architecture and product configuration decisions while working in situations that are often poorly understood. The ramifications of such decisions are non-trivial – new product launches are infrequent, resources often cannot be reallocated, and predicting all possible future scenarios is impossible. This talk will highlight our recent efforts in helping engineers understand ‘what is going on here?’ when designing consumer products for heterogenous markets and engineered systems that operate for many years in a constantly changing world.…

SEMINAR: Harnessing Mechanical Instabilities for Functionalities

October 2 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Abstract: Mechanical instabilities have historically been viewed as a failure mechanism in materials and engineering structures. Over the past decade, the incredible advantages of controllable surface and structural instabilities have been harnessed in soft materials at all scales for functionalities, including stretchable electronics, surface-related multifunctionality, and soft robotics. In this talk, I will discuss our recent work on leveraging mechanical instability in soft materials and structures for achieving extreme properties and high performances. First, I will discuss mechanics of surface…

Superomniphobic Surfaces: Design & Applications

October 9 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Abstract: Recent years have seen significant advances in understanding super-repellent surfaces, i.e., surfaces with extreme repellency to liquids. Surfaces with extreme repellency to water are considered to be superhydrophobic. Surfaces with extreme repellency to virtually any liquid – aqueous or organic; Newtonian or non-Newtonian; with low or high viscosity; with low or high surface tension; acids, bases or solvents; monomers, oligomers or polymers etc. – are considered to be superomniphobic. In this presentation, I will discuss the fundamental physical and…
