Dr. Ugo Piomelli is the first member of the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering to be elected to the Royal Society of Canada. He joined the department in 2008, and was awarded a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Computational Turbulence, and the HPCVL-Sun Microsystems Chair in Computational Science and Engineering. The Canada Research Chair was renewed in 2015. Over his tenure in MME, he has supervised fifteen students, some of whom have been inspired to join academia finding faculty positions at City University (London, UK), Purdue (West Lafayette, Indiana) and Michigan State University (East Lansing, Michigan).
The Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering is pleased to welcome Dr. Kean C. Aw to the Distinguished Speakers Series. Dr. Aw is joining us from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. He will be discussing " Printing of Smart Materials and Structures".
Abstract: The ability to print smart materials especially at different scale (micro or meso-scale) has gained significant interest. The use of various smart materials such as conducting polymer, piezoelectric materials, etc can be exploited when printed on or as unique 3D or 2D structures. Together with clever printing of 2D or 3D smart structures, different types of transducers can be achieved. In this presentation, I will present the 3D printing of different smart materials such as polypyrrole, PEDOT, CNT for various applications such as micro-hairs as flow sensor, flexible large stretch sensor, etc.
Please join us at 2:00pm July 8th in McLaughlin Hall, room 302.
