SEMINAR: Ultrasonic Elasticity Imaging with Acoustic Radiation Force

October 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 pm

Abstract Elasticity imaging involves introducing a mechanical tissue perturbation, imaging the resulting tissue response, and generating images that reflect the underlying mechanical properties of the tissue.  Acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) based ultrasonic elasticity imaging methods have become widely available in the clinical market over the past five years. To date, these methods have found success clinically in the context of hepatic fibrosis staging and breast lesion characterization, with many additional applications under investigation.   A major focus our laboratory…

SEMINAR: Distributed Sensing for Mechanical and Biomedical Systems

November 1 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Abstract Sensor technologies are the foundation of all “smart” technologies, e.g. mobile health, robotics, smart grid, environmental monitoring, structural health monitoring, etc. A major challenge for sensor research is to achieve densely distributed, wireless, low power consumption sensor networks. This talk presents the study of microwave patch antenna sensors to address this challenge. We discovered that a microstrip patch antenna can be designed to sense various physical parameters, including strain, pressure, shear, and crack etc. Since the patch antenna also…

SEMINAR: SHM in Civil Aviation: Delta Air Lines | Activities and Perspective

December 6 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Abstract There is significant interest in implementing Structural Health Monitoring on civil aircraft. However, in order to reach the full potential of SHM, lots of issues remain as challenges. These include regulatory, technical, procedural and financial. While SHM can be used as ‘alternate inspections’ to conventional NDT, a philosophical change is needed to use SHM as part of a Condition Based Maintenance program. Therefore, SHM will involve progressive step-changes in the future. This presentation will provide a vision of these…

SEMINAR: Smart and Connected Soft Bioelectronics for Advancing Human Healthcare and Human-Machine Interfaces

December 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Abstract: Dr. Yeo has established a strong research program in the field of nanoengineered human-machine electronic interfaces. The goal of Dr. Yeo’s research is to understand fundamentals of soft materials, deformable mechanics, biological interface forces, and nanomanufacturing methods for development of stretchable hybrid biosensors and bioelectronics. The comprehensive study of mechanics, materials, and manufacturing for biosystems aims to advance human healthcare, disease diagnostics, therapeutics, and human-machine interaction.  In this talk, he will discuss about recent research works on soft, smart…
