ME303/ MATSCI333: Soft Composites and Soft Robotics

Main content start

Fundamentals of soft materials and soft composites in the aspects of mechanical characterization, polymer physics, mechanics, finite-element-analysis of large deformation, and advanced material fabrication including different 3D printing technologies. Stimuli-responsive soft composites for soft robotics and shape-morphing structures will be introduced. Examples such as material systems that respond to magnetic field, electrical field, pneumatic pressure, light, and heat will be discussed.
